COLL 400: Capstone

The COLL 400 capstone experience usually takes place in your senior year. Here you will draw on the knowledge you've gained from studies in your major, the College Curriculum, and your other courses and experiences to form your own scholarly work. 

You'll be expected to synthesize and apply critical analysis, solve problems in an applied and/or academic setting, create original material or original scholarship, and communicate effectively with diverse audiences. You can accomplish COLL 400 through upper-level seminars, independent study and research projects, and Honors projects that are specially designated by departments, programs, or schools. You will likely, but not necessarily, fulfill the COLL 400 through a course in your major.
