Students present at Capstone Conference
Posted on December 12, 2012
More than 60 senior English majors presented their undergraduate theses Friday, December 7, in Kirkhof Center, during the English 495 Capstone Conference. This culminating event for the course required that students publicly present a project that they have been responsible for shaping from its inception to its final form.
The presentations demonstrated the expertise that students have accrued in the research process and allowed them to speak as authorities about their topic. This final assignment of the course is the one that perhaps most clearly transitions students out of the major and into the next phase of their lives.
