Capstone Information

MPA (PUAD 5361) and MCJ (CRJU 5361)


PUAD 5361: In this Capstone, students demonstrate their mastery of the knowledge and skills acquired in core courses, through the conduct of a client-based project. Students in a concentration must undertake a project related to that concentration. Students also make a juried oral presentation of the professional paper which reports project findings. This is the cumulative opportunity for students to apply concepts, theories, and research skills gained in the program to professional practice.
 
CRJU 5361: In this Capstone, students demonstrate their mastery of the knowledge and skills acquired in core courses, as applied to either their chosen program concentration or individualized program, by conducting a Program Integration Project. The PIP may be either an independent research project or client-oriented project. Students also make a juried oral presentation of the professional paper which reports project findings. This is the cumulative opportunity for students to apply concepts and theory to professional practice, and thus should be taken at or near the end of a student’s program of study.
