Communication Studies Capstone Projects
Graduating EOU seniors complete a capstone experience or senior project in their majors. These culminating experiences tie together the objectives of their programs, the general education outcomes, and often career-related applications of learning and doing. There is a wide range of discipline-based projects for seniors: education majors prepare to teach portfolios; business administration students create business plans for community partners; seniors in the sciences conduct original research and often publish their findings or present them at national conferences; and art majors work in a semi-private studio to prepare their capstone exhibitions (EOU is the only public university in Oregon with such dedicated facilities for undergraduate art students). Ultimately, EOU ensures all of its graduates are prepared for the world of work or for continued study in graduate programs.
