Senior-Led Seminars

Babson’s hugely popular Senior-Led Seminar program will give you the opportunity to teach and share your knowledge on a topic that holds special meaning for you. Past seminar topics have ranged from navigating responsible adulthood to appreciating and understanding memes and popular culture.

Independent Research

You want to take a deep dive into a specific area of research (for example, writing case studies, developing a statistical model, or exploring the roots of a problem). Independent study gives you an opportunity to create your own course of study and work one on one with a faculty member, all while earning academic credit.
