The capstone project, IDST6980 Graduate Project, is required of all students in the program, irrespective of their track. The project is a prospectively planned and approved research, educational, administrative or community service activity designed to support and enhance the student’s ability to apply their graduate experience and achieve tangible outcomes. It is normally conducted after completion of core and specialization coursework and includes 150-300 hours of field work or practical experience. Students may complete the project at their place of employment if (1) the company/institution approves and (2) the project is beyond a student’s normal work responsibilities. The student works with a faculty advisor and on-site supervisor to develop a meaningful, graduate level experience.
