Capstone Projects

Capstone projects are the final class or project in a course of study.  It is called a capstone because it represents a crowning achievement as a capstone does in architecture.  A capstone course may require a project or presentation while for others, it may include an assessment exam to test interdisciplinary skills such as math, writing, critical thinking, etc.  Often times, a capstone will include a final research paper exploring a topic of interest in the student’s individualized program of study.  Capstone projects give the opportunity for people to demonstrate the knowledge and skills that they have gained during their time studying a particular course.
