The Senior Capstone for the Bachelor of General Studies is designed to encourage self-analysis of career and intellectual interests in the student's chosen career or academic field based on the four cognate areas. By way of readings, discussion, analytical exercises, writing assignments, group exercises, and class presentations, students will demonstrate and practice the skills they have acquired throughout their academic careers. Students will develop a detailed project proposal and complete a final research project linking the four areas of study of the student's personalized BGS degree plan with career and intellectual interests. The final written project will consist of research, reviews, and analysis targeted toward a specified audience. A presentation of the project is required.
