Senior Seminar

All majors will participate in the Senior Seminar (offered during spring semester), which is a capstone experience for their work in Philosophy. The seminar culminates with a 30-page paper that articulates and synthesizes the student’s position on philosophical issues. Students are encouraged to think in advance of the topics on which they would like to concentrate in developing a comprehensive philosophy. Ideally, the Junior Research Seminar should involve work that enables the student to flesh out and develop his/her special areas of concern.
