Senior year at Gallatin holds a number of exciting opportunities to develop new projects, share academic work, and to celebrate academic achievements. Students continute taking Gallatin interdisciplinary seminars in their senior year, and also take advanced courses through the University in their fields of focus. 

In the fall of the senior year, students participate in the culminating degree requirement, the senior colloquium. The colloquium is a final oral examination involving a two-hour conversation with three faculty members. At the colloquium, students reflect on their Gallatin concentration and to synthesize various learning experiences into an integrated discussion of several books and themes, from classical to modern.

In the second semester of the senior year, students have the option to undertake a senior project. Senior project proposals due at the end of the Fall semester, and are evaluated by faculty committee. The committee seeks proposals articulating projects of exceptional merit that continue a sustained line of inquiry related to students' concentrations.
