Senior Capstone Projects
By the second semester of Junior Year, students have begun to formalize a plan for either a Senior Applied Research Project (SARP), which is a 15-credit sequence of 3 courses, or a Senior Project, which is a 6-credit sequence of 2 courses. Students may enroll in either one of these Capstone Learning Experiences in their Junior or Senior years as appropriate.
Please find below documents from the 2009-2010 SARP Survival Guide that can help you at each stage of your project:

Senior Capstone Project
The 6-credit Senior Project is a 2-course sequence of integrated study in a student's major area. Students work with a faculty advisor to co-create an independent project that may include field, library, or archival research, a creative application of a student's area of expertise, and/or an applied component appropriate in nature and scope to the project. A public presentation to the community is also required. Please see the following document for more information about applying for a Senior Project:
