Cognizant that academic experiences for seniors which integrate and apply four years of study are equal in importance to general education, the college has developed a number of interdisciplinary senior seminars in recent years and expanded internship and other off-campus study opportunities for seniors. Seminars have
been offered recently on issues such as energy, world food problems, American minorities, and human adaptation to change. Interdisciplinary senior seminars in the humanities focusing on a single major text are offered each semester. Included among the graduation requirements is a Senior Year Experience of at least one-half credit designed by individual departments. Typical Senior Year Experiences are seminars, tutorials, professional internships, independent study, and major research projects.
