Undergraduate Capstone Projects

The Capstone Project is an opportunity for students to complete their Bachelors degree by demonstrating the skills and knowledge they have gained throughout their program of study.

The Capstone Project culminates in a written paper and a poster presentation.  Students may elect to do a digital demo and verbal overview of an electronic project instead of a summary poster.

With such a variety of Capstone Project ideas resulting from our diverse student body, the School of Individualized Studies seeks to bring examples of these outstanding products to prospective students, the academic community, employers and other interested parties.
