Capstone Requirements

Capstone Requirements

The purpose of the Presidential Capstone project is to provide students in honors the opportunity to conduct research based on their specific interests, gifts, passions or goals within their discipline. Projects can include musical compositions, short stories, illustrations and research papers. Students work one-on-one with a faculty member in their major to select, research, write and complete the Presidential Capstone usually during their junior or senior year. The project is often considered equivalent to a graduate-level assignment and allows the student to demonstrate competence for graduate school or employment.

Presidential Capstone Requirements
Honors: Intro to Capstone course (CR3111) is required during the fall semester before beginning the project. To complete the requirements, the final project must be presented to the JBU community at Celebration of Academic Excellence. An accompanying Faith and Integration Essay--which explains how the student's research and faith influence one another--must also be presented to the community.

Formatting Guidelines
Students are required to submit their completed Presidential Capstone electronically to the HSP Office the Friday before finals week. Each project must have a title page with the project's title, the student's name, the supervising professor's name and the date of submission. The paper must be formatted to a 1.5" left margin. All other margins should be 1 inch. A 12-point, Times New Roman font, must appear double-spaced throughout. The body of the paper is to be formatted according to the specific style guidelines of the student's academic discipline.

Assessment
The supervising professor will send final assessment rubrics and project assessment to the HSP Office prior to graduation.
