What is a Capstone?

A capstone may be written as a term paper, a research project, or senior seminar.  It should incorporate the knowledge and skills gained from working on your baccalaureate degree. Capstones are completed during the senior year, as a culmination to an academic career at EOU.

The capstone process requires thoughtfulness, focus, and a readiness to work directly with faculty member. Although not graduate level work, this capstone project provides the opportunity to study in depth an academic topic that may be of interest to you.

Begin preparing capstone from the beginning of your university studies. Select something you WANT to learn about. The topic should be a blend of both subjects/minors which demonstrate the integrative learning outcome.
