Fall 2020 PA 5080: Capstone Prep Workshop is required. http://classinfo.umn.edu/?rosex122+PA8081+Spring2021
Class Description:
The Capstone in Science Technology and Environmental Policy (PA 8081) is a one- semester course that fulfills the professional paper or capstone requirements for the Humphrey School MS-STEP degree program. Students in other degree programs may enroll in the STEP Capstone if they have professional interests in related topics. With the exception of discussions and limited readings during the semester, PA 8081 is project based. Your primary effort will be devoted to completion of the research projects you develop with your clients. The course will also ask you to reflect on your learning at stages of the project.
Learning Objectives:

In the context of responding to the expressed needs of a client, you will:

1. Articulate a public problem/opportunity statement and develop/manage a scope

of work that supports the needs of a public or nonprofit client

2. Prepare and execute a research/project plan to strengthen theoretical and

practical grounding in leadership, public policy or program analysis, and reflective problem-solving to inform action on a public problem.

3. Collect and analyze data from a variety of research methods to deepen

understanding of social conditions and produce information and evidence-based

recommendations that will improve understanding and enable effective public action.

4. Develop ideas and recommendations responsive to the needs expressed by your

client and the terms of your agreement.

5. Communicate findings and recommendations - both orally and in writing - with confidence and professionalism to influence decisions and inspire action that advances public objectives and interests.

6. Work effectively with others with diverse experiences and perspectives to forge

professional relationships with a governmental or nonprofit client and Capstone teammates.

7. Develop a better understanding or your own learning process through reflection

Exam Format:
