The colloquium committee consists of your adviser and two other faculty members. At least one member of your committee must be a full-time Gallatin faculty member. If you are having difficulty finding faculty members for you committee, please contact the senior class adviser.
The Colloquium is a discussion between the student and three faculty members, including the student’s adviser, of the student’s “List of Works,” of the relation of these works to the student’s concentration, and of issues and concepts that have arisen in the student’s studies. The Colloquium is supported by the Rationale and List of Works and need not be supported with electronic visual media. Therefore, Colloquia are often scheduled in the office of a Gallatin faculty committee member. On occasion, the student must rely on electronic visual media. In those cases, the rooms that may be available for these colloquia are equipped to display media from the internet, DVD (not Blu-ray), flash drive through a MacMini, or directly from the student's laptop/iPad (if the student brings the cables) on a large wall-mounted flat-screen monitor with built-in speakers. The equipment is not Bluetooth enabled.
