Hands-On Experiences

Practical Application

Online courses focus on practical application of the material learned. Many of your fellow students are working adults and course activities give you an opportunity to apply what you’re learning to real life situations.

Senior Research Project

Students will research a real-world problem associated with their minor area of interest in the Senior Capstone course. In researching the problem, students will learn about problem solving and offer a possible solution to the real-world problem. This allows you to have a hands-on opportunity to walk through researching and writing about a topic in your field of interest.

Senior Portfolio Project

Students will design a portfolio that reflects their experiences, skills and personalities in the Senior Capstone course. You will have the opportunity to discover and reflect on your purpose, core values, and plans for the future. You will create SMART goals to help you launch your future after graduation.
