Class Description:
Capstone is learning in action. It provides students with both a critical learning experience and an opportunity to perform a public service. Students work in teams to address challenges, solve problems and identify opportunities for a client organization. Students will design the approach, conduct the data collection and analysis, and present findings (both orally and in writing) to the client. Capstone builds on students' previous coursework and expertise, while also enhancing student learning on policy and management issues, key process skills and research skills. Capstone requires students to interweave their learning and do so in real time, in an unpredictable and complex real-world environment. Although divided into teams, the class will work as a learning community dedicated to the success of all the projects.
Learning Objectives:
Capstone integrates and enhances learning in several arenas: a content or issue area, process skills including project, client and team management, and research methods for gathering, analyzing and reporting data.
