Senior Symposium

The Senior Symposium (HUM 6500)

With good food and well-known classmates, our seniors complete their Humanities journey in a weekly, evening seminar.  Students take charge of discussions that return to the Gateway themes of God, World, Person, and Society.  They write their senior essays on individually crafted topics that integrate their learning from the Gateways and Electives and that allow them to contemplate more fully their own lives, world, and paths beyond Villanova.  

You might be interested to see the topics that our Senior Essay Prize winners have written on in the last few years.
