The capstone course creates opportunities for reflection, assessment, integration and demonstration of competence to unify and support the individual's experience in the Master's of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies program. Individuals must have the proposal for the capstone project approved by the Graduate Studies Council prior to enrolling in the capstone course.
Capstone project topics might be drawn from a student's personal or professional domain. The research project begins at the end of the first year as students are challenged to search for a topic. Then they develop a formal research proposal. The work continues throughout the second year, culminating in a public presentation before fellow students and faculty.
