Capstone Seminar

The objective of the Capstone seminar is to stimulate critical interdisciplinary thinking and research on the family.

The seminar was designed to be taken at the end of
the student's cross disciplinary course of study on the
family. The capstone seminar bridges cross disciplinary studies with interdisciplinary work and research.

The seminar places emphasis on independent research. To be successful, a student will produce a paper that demonstrates depth (competency in analysis), breadth (evidence of competency in the literature of at least two content areas) and critical analysis (integrating and differentiating material and organizing it coherently).
