The Honors Director holds an informational meeting about the capstone sometime in September. Anyone planning to undertake a capstone during that academic year should plan to attend. The capstone process has several important steps, but these are straightforward. The key to an enriching and enjoyable project is an engaged advisor who can lend some structure and good feedback to the process: choose one well!

For more information about the Honors Capstone Project, please see the 2014 Honors Capstone Booklet, and especially the narrative overview that introduces the project and associated paperwork.

Email Honors Director Tammy Berberi for editable versions of all capstone forms included in the above booklet.

Many students submit their capstone work for presentation at the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium held each year in April.

Students can also choose to have their capstone projects archived in the Honors stream of the UMM Digital Well. Contact Briggs Library (x6175) to inquire about signing permissions and submitting your project to the Well.
