H SER 446 - Final Capstone

2 Credits
To address the transition from school to work, students will compile, organize, and present a capstone project based on the Bachelor of Applied Behavioral Science - Youth Development degree outcomes. Within a clearly-defined framework, the capstone process allows students choice in the format of their project and how they document and share fulfillment of the degree outcomes. The capstone project provides students with the opportunity for an authentic demonstration of competence in the key outcome areas identified for the degree. Students are required to demonstrate that they have fully understood, synthesized, and are able to apply what they have learned to their practice. In addition to a focus on overall ability, students are encouraged to include an area of interest or specialization.
