The MDP/GPA Capstone Project

The Capstone Project is designed to provide a culminating learning experience for second-year students as they apply their knowledge through a team-project for a client (e.g. public, development or non-government organization). The projects allow students to gain important practical experience that will position them for professional success. In addition, the capstone experience facilitates student reflection on the knowledge and values acquired during their program. Student teams gain experience in working collaboratively, interacting with clients, and in jointly managing projects. Students are supported in their work by the course instructor, who provides guidance and feedback, leading toward the development of a professional quality project.
