No matter what you call it, a capstone project:

  • Is something you complete as an undergrad, usually in your senior year
  • Will allow you to deeply engage with a topic and showcase your subject knowledge
  • Is in partnership with instructors
  • Is a blend of in-depth research, reflection, and will evolve over many drafts
  • Can be 15 to 50+ pages in length and take months to complete
  • Can involve an internship, service-learning, lab work, portfolio, exhibit, collecting data in the field, or analyzing historical data
