Capstone in Culture, Text and Language in World Societies
This advanced program supports student senior thesis and capstone project work. Mandatory program meetings and readings in theory, research design and methodology provide a common scaffolding as students work on their independent research, writing and other projects in the humanities, social sciences and related fields. Students may incorporate independent language study or other specific skill acquisition into their senior project, based on their individual needs. Credit equivalencies will be based on each student's individual project and the knowledge they acquire; possible focus for projects includes interdisciplinary work in history, art history, literature, philosophy, gender studies, ethnic studies, cultural studies and the performing arts, sociology, ethnography, religious studies, languages and related fields.
Our approach will emphasize participation in synchronous (live) sessions; however, if students find themselves unable to participate due to technology problems, caregiving obligations, economic disruption, health risk, or illness, they can work with faculty to pursue alternate options to earn related credit.
Students should contact faculty via the faculty Evergreen email with their research/project plan.
