Capstone Honors

ID: 3396
Status: Ongoing
Start date: September 2017

Description

The Honors Capstone is the pinnacle of an undergraduate experience. During their Capstone experience, Honors graduates produce their first original, scholarly work. Motivated and capable students from all disciplines are invited to embark on this year and-a-half journey. During this process, students select their committee, find a topic, propose their original work, and then create their Capstone. Each student invests a huge portion of their time and energy in completing their projects. The Capstone Presentation is the final requirement for graduation with University Honors.
