POL499P Capstone Project

[3–0, 3 cr.]

The capstone course is designed to give students a culminating experience where they can focus on a project within the fields of international affairs and political science. In consultation with their instructor, students will base their capstone projects of a topic of interest, offering them an opportunity to strengthen their theoretical and applied knowledge of the subject matter by bridging theory and practice. Working in groups, students are also encouraged to pursue their choice of final deliverable that best suits their capstone, such as a poster, policy brief, or video. Students are encouraged to select a capstone topic and a final deliverable that best compliments their respective academic and professional objectives.
