All seniors are required to complete a Capstone Project that demonstrates the interdisciplinary, critical and creative thinking skills they have learned at CSW. Students work closely with their capstone advisors to develop and propose a topic to explore in depth over the course of the year. Students are encouraged to think beyond traditional classroom curricula to choose a topic that is of interest to them and connects to the interests of a wider community.
As part of the project, students are required to keep a journal throughout the duration of the project and write a statement that reflects on their own personal and intellectual growth. The project culminates with a presentation to their peers and members of the Capstone Committee.
