About Capstones



A culminating experience that requires students to create a project that integrates and applies what they have learned.

- Association of American Colleges & Universities

To meet Honors requirements, a capstone should:

  • Have a proposal process that demonstrates synthesis of the background and theory of the field
  • Require periodic reflection on the learning taking place
  • Result in a scholarly product appropriate for the field
  • Include a public presentation (n.b. if a departmental capstone is used, the public presentation must be someplace more public than the class for which the project was completed)
  • Be completed under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Students should consult with a University Honors Program advisor in the planning stages to seek approval for their capstone experience
