Global Studies - Capstone Projects
Global Studies Capstone Projects are a work of original scholarship which synthesizes a student’s major disciplinary training, interdisciplinary perspectives, diverse data, knowledge gained from intercultural and collaborative experiences, as well as insights from a student’s biographical background – all through the innovative applications of language, culture, and technology.
In the GLST seminars, students draw directly on the specialized knowledge and skills they gain through studies in their major(s) to bring them into broader conversations about cross-cultural and transnational events and ideas through their exploration of a “target culture” (or abroad site).
Through GLST coursework students relate the full range of their academic and personal background and interests, in ways that recognize the critical role of personal identity to further enhance. The end product of a student's engagement in the GLST sequence and the globalized educational experience is a research-focused, multimodal, analytical Capstone project that reflects a student’s academic focus, personal interests, and career goals.
Students are strongly encouraged to develop projects which can be useful in multiple ways and which can serve as bridges to future objectives and career options. The Global Studies Capstone Project is published on online platforms which are visually appealing and engaging, and which can be easily showcased.
