Examples of capstone projects may include original research projects, internships with state or federal agencies, shadowing experiences with professionals, or successfully passing professional/ graduate school entrance exams.

The capstone project must be designed or chosen by the student in consultation with a faculty mentor or advisor, who must approve the project before work begins.
