Capstone Project

The senior capstone project is an independent study (LST198) developed in consultation with the director of the Latino Studies program or a faculty member associated with the program. It may, for example, involve independent research, a creative project, or work in one of Boston’s Latino communities.

 

The capstone project must culminate in a written paper, performance or oral presentation, which integrates the knowledge and methodologies of the disciplines represented by a student’s courses toward the minor. The capstone may also be based, in part, on a documented internship. In the case of an internship or creative project, the capstone must include a written component reflecting on and/or analyzing the internship or creative work. The internship may fulfill a requirement for a student’s major but in that case, a separate paper will be completed as the LST capstone and will be evaluated by the program director and an associated program faculty member.
