Texas Graduate Liberal Studies Symposium

The Master of Liberal Studies programs of Rice University and Southern Methodist University invite you to participate in the third annual Texas Graduate Liberal Studies Symposium.

The symposium provides an opportunity for students and alumni from Texas graduate liberal studies programs to share their experiences and studies and continue to explore timeless and timely human questions within the humanities, social sciences and sciences. Students and alumni are encouraged to submit papers to be considered for presentations during the symposium. This one-day symposium will open with a breakfast on Saturday morning followed by student and alumni presentations. A keynote speaker will deliver a lecture during lunch.
