COMM 9970 - Capstone


3 cr.
Capstone provides each student with the opportunity to synthesize and apply what they have learned in their earlier graduate coursework in an ambitious term-length project that unfolds within an online seminar environment. Students will conceive, propose, design, and then incrementally produce this Capstone Project within a real world context, which can be working with (or within) an organization, a community, or perhaps even a social movement. The key is that it be real, experiential, and applied. By adopting a process approach to the production of this Capstone Project, this online classroom community will serve as a workshop environment for receiving valuable guidance and regular feedback from other students and the instructor, thereby supporting the advancement of their work to a professional caliber. The Capstone Project, then, provides a culminating experience in which students constructively apply concepts, theories, and research skills gained in the Applied Communication program to real world professional practice.
