Senior Research Seminar

A Research Seminar focuses on a series of common texts dealing either with the inculturation of Catholicism in different geographical/regional locations (i.e., Asia, Latin America, Africa, Oceania, Irish-American, Italian-American, Latino/a, Black, Amerindian), or a theme approached from several disciplinary perspectives and across historical periods (i.e., “Catholic Practices of Asceticism” in art, music, literature, theology). The Seminar will offer the student the opportunity to research, write and present a senior project that thematically integrates what has been learned in the minor.

The Seminar will be facilitated by a member of the Catholic Studies Advisory committee and presentations will become an occasion for creating intellectual community among Catholic Studies' minors and faculty advisors.
