Each Program of Study has a Capstone requirement which you’ll complete during your senior year. The Capstone is a project that integrates knowledge and skills from the courses in the Academic Program, the Exploration and Enrichment Sequence, and the Concordia Distinctive. It could be a one or two semester experience, earning no fewer than three credits and no more than six credits.

Students are expected to play an active role in proposing and developing their individual Capstone experience. The project will demonstrate that students have achieved the goals of their designated program. Students will put together a written proposal which demonstrates depth and breadth and must be formally endorsed by the entire department or program.

Demonstrating the Writing Process and meeting Concordia’s Writing Standard are key components of the Capstone experience, which includes a measurable outcome in the form of a paper, portfolio, project or performance. When appropriate, the Capstone leads to a public presentation.
