URS-6000: Capstone

The Capstone is a semester-long comprehensive project in which students integrate environment, economy, and social equity through the overarching lens of natural systems thinking in order to demonstrate the habits of mind, breadth of knowledge, practitioner skills, and social justice perspective that reflect the mission of the University and the USMA Program. With that vision of a larger matrix or network of interconnected systems, students address an urban sustainability question, problem, or initiative, building from the Capstone Proposals that they wrote at the end of the Research and Writing course. In consultation with their Capstone Committees, students design, create, record, and report on the processes of a significant client project or research project. Projects can be done by individuals or teams, and innovation is encouraged. The seminar component of the course keeps students in contact with each other and their Capstone course instructor through online conferencing as well as class and individual meetings during the residency. Students complete their capstone projects, including a written document, and prepare a presentation, which is given during their final six-day residency of the program.
