Senior Project (3 cr) (14 weeks)
This course is designed as a culminating or "capstone" learning experience for adults nearing the completion of the baccalaureate degree through Lifelong Learning and Community Engagement. The fundamental aim of the course is to equip participants with the learning capacities and competencies necessary for continued personal, civic and career growth. This course is an individually planned learning project that combines the concepts and ideas mastered through coursework with actual workplace environments. The student, the instructor and a workplace mentor will agree on an applied learning project. Goals, objectives, and a preliminary plan will be approved in writing by all three parties before the project is begun. The project will be supervised by the University instructor and the workplace mentor and will include a literature review and commentary, original work and a final report and presentation.
Prerequisites: Department consent.
