About the Symposium
The Academic Symposium is an annual, day-long conference hosted by the Regent College Student Association which showcases research by current Regent students.
This year’s Symposium will offer six discipline-specific sessions and eighteen student presentations.

- Christianity and Culture in Asia
- Early Church History
- Women’s Spirituality
- Doctrines of the Church
- Theological Anthropology
- Scripture and Bible Translation
