AAS 4000 - Applied Arts and Sciences Capstone

Credits: 4
The purpose of the capstone is to provide a personal culminating experience for students in which they both look back on their education thus far and look forward to next steps in their career and life in general. This reflection on experience is distinctly Augustinian. Each capstone experience will be designed by the student in consultation with an Education Specialist, and approved by the Chair of the Bachelor Degree Completion Faculty Learning Council and one member on the Faculty Learning Council who is serving as the faculty of record for the course. The capstone experience will take the form of an independent study that could include but is not necessarily limited to the following approaches: The creation of a professional development plan, an environmental scan and analysis of a particular industry, a scholarly research project, and/or a portfolio development project. The course will conclude with public dissemination of the student’s capstone experience and a self-reflective paper.
