2019 Senior Thesis Presentations

The Senior Thesis is the culminating work of Trinity’s Humanities program. It is a summative and integrative project that requires students to use the rhetorical skills developed at all phases of their learning at Trinity to develop a thoughtful and persuasive argument on a chosen topic. Their arguments and topics must be things of depth and significance about which Christians can reasonably disagree.
