Master's Courses: Capstone Timing and Process

Students are encouraged to begin planning for their capstone as soon as they start the MTSE program. Students with a good idea of what they want for their capstone project may take the Capstone Project Design course in their first term, while other students may want to wait until the middle of their program. Students should plan to have completed their Capstone Project Design about halfway through the program if not earlier. It is expected that for many students, the 508 Capstone Project may be concurrent with other courses in their last few terms, although some students may prefer to focus on it after other coursework is completed.

  1. Discuss ideas for your capstone with the MTSE Program Director during your first term. This will help you plan for how individual projects from courses might build toward your Capstone.
  2. Take 507: Capstone Project Design. This will help you refine your capstone project into a concrete proposal. Should be completed about halfway through the MTSE program.
  3. Students will select their Capstone Advisor during 507: Capstone Project Design. The capstone advisor is typically one of the faculty in the MTSE program, although exceptions may be considered as needed.
  4. Take 508: Science, Technology, Society and Ministry Capstone Project. It is expected that for many students, the 508 Capstone Project may be concurrent with other courses in their last few terms, although some students may prefer to focus on it after other coursework is completed. Note that this course does not run on a fixed time, but students work on it until it is completed and approved by their advisor and the MTSE program director.
