Capstone seminars are offered to students in their junior or senior year through their major field of study for varying credit or through a three-credit course offered within the Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum. Capstone seminars completed within a student's major field of study will count toward major requirements. Enrollment in capstone seminars is limited to 20 students.

Capstone seminars:

  • Provide students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of a subject area or skill.
  • Require synthesis and integration of prior knowledge and abilities.
  • Are designed to facilitate the transition from WSU to the world of work, professional development and/or graduate studies.
  • May include research, leadership and internship opportunities, artistic projects, the production of a portfolio of student work, and/or other culminating learning experiences.
