The mission of Capstone Programs at the University of Utah is to support undergraduate students in their pursuit of curricular and co-curricular Capstone projects through engagement with students, faculty, and academic programs in all disciplines throughout the University of Utah.
What is a Capstone?
Capstones are culminating projects where students synthesize, integrate, and apply the knowledge and experiences accumulated over the course of their undergraduate career. Students typically pursue Capstone projects during the junior/senior year. Some Capstones occur in the context of a Capstone course; others are co-curricular. Importantly, Capstone Projects help students achieve the three Capstone Learning Outcomes.
Capstone projects may include undergraduate research, service projects, and entrepreneurial ventures. The products of Capstones include Senior/Honors theses, scholarly presentations, performances or other events. Capstone projects are supervised by at least one University of Utah faculty member, and interdisciplinary and group Capstones are welcome.
