The IDS Capstone Project Course, IDS 499, requires that you complete a 50 hour project. The project should give you an opportunity to integrate content from your concentration and minor/clusters. You will be required to find a faculty mentor to provide guidance for your project. At the end of the semester you will be required to present your project. On campus students typically present at the Research and Creative Works Conference (link to the R&CW Conference). Online students work with their instructor to determine an alternative presentation venue. For more information visit IDS Capstone Course.
