One- and Two- Unit Courses

There are many courses at Stanford that are only one or two units (representing approximately 3-6 hours of work per week). These courses include “introduction to the field” courses, speaker-series courses, and activity courses. They offer a unique way to explore an area of interest and round out your schedule with an extra unit or two! Note that this list is not exhaustive (for example, many 1-unit and 2-unit activity courses in athletics, music, dance, languages, etc. are not listed).
