About the Final Project
Students pursue their capstone experience independently or as part of a team. As their final course, students take either the individual research project in an independent study format or the classroom final course in which students integrate the knowledge they have gained in the core curriculum in work assigned by the instructor. In both cases, students are guided by faculty in exploring the body of knowledge on regulatory compliance while contributing research of practical value to the field. The capstone independent project and capstone class project count as one unit of credit.
