Lecture Series

A favored pastime of Baylor students and faculty alike is the Honors College Lecture Series, during which time professionals from sundry fields are invited to conduct interactive lectures on a variety of topics -- the problems of modernism, the true nature of education, the politics and ethics of immigration, and the philosophical and spiritual significance of contemporary film, to name a few.

Designed to stimulate thought and discussion, the Lecture Series never fails to draw a crowd. Lectures are conducted throughout the fall and spring semesters, and plenty of succulent refreshments always are on hand...but, seating can be difficult to find if you arrive late!

Check back soon for updates to the 2016-2017 lineup!
