The Capstone Seminar course builds on the Integrative Seminar, in which students demonstrated their expertise in DSW curricular content and defended their Capstone proposal (and obtained IRB approval as was needed). In this Seminar, students will implement the projects that were approved in the Integrative Seminar, which sets the stage for their post–DSW career trajectory.
The Capstone is the culminating degree project designed to address a problem, gap or unmet need in social work practice, leadership, or teaching. The strategy used to address the identified concern can be creative and delivery of the project can be varied. Through the Capstone, students will demonstrate their expertise in their chosen area through application of knowledge and theory gained in the three program pillars of practice, incorporating the DEIPAR social justice lens.
