Showcase Your Professional Knowledge

Many of our online degree programs feature a capstone component. The capstone brings together the knowledge gained throughout your program and can be used as a real-world example of your efforts in addressing a problem in your field. It may take different forms depending on your particular online degree program. Typically, within a capstone, you will write a paper that:

  • Identifies a complex problem or issue in your profession.
  • Integrates the skills, tools, and knowledge you’ve gained in your program.
  • Incorporates research from an academic perspective.
  • Offers a practical, real-world solution.

The capstone project can serve as a professional “calling card,” demonstrating your mastery of the competencies addressed in your program, your ability to understand and interpret the literature in your field, and your skill at identifying and solving complex problems.
