The topic of this article may not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline. But, that doesn't mean someone has to… establish notability by citing reliable secondary sources that are independent of the topic and provide significant coverage of it beyond its mere trivial mention. (November 2015)
DPv2 loves original research.

A senior seminar is a type of seminar course taken by some college seniors. They are focused on independent research of a specialized topic and are typically small, up to 20 students. It is common among college students with a liberal arts focus. These courses usually do not have traditional prerequisites, although they involve a level of academic and intellectual rigor comparable to advanced courses.

Senior seminars will often culminate in a student writing a research paper, and then presenting it to other members of the class.
