• Capstone Options

  • All MA and MS students must fulfill a capstone project requirement, usually in their final two semesters of study. Capstone projects are an important way that students gain valuable scholarly or professional experience, whether as practitioners, media producers, consultants, or researchers.

    There are two options for completing the capstone requirement:

    • Thesis option - an independent research project that takes the form of a single long essay, a media production, or two papers with a bridge essay.

    • Practice option - a professional project that could take the form of an assignment for a client organization, a simulation, or two independent projects using a technical tool.

    Students choose their capstone project in consultation with their advisor when they have completed 18 credits. Each of these options requires six credits worth of classes, and significant independent work — either individually or in groups — that is conducted under guidance of a faculty member. In the semester prior to undertaking capstone work, students must submit the Capstone Declaration form.
