This course is the first to be taken in a two-semester sequence, and should be taken the semester before the semester in which the student plans to graduate. In this course, the student will write a formal proposal for the Senior Capstone Project, which must satisfy the specific proposal requirements set by the Communication Studies faculty, and assessed by the instructor of record for the course. The student also will complete an annotated bibliography of sources appropriate to the project’s area(s) of study. Finally, the student will work with COMS faculty to find an acceptable venue for an Applied Learning Activity in the local community.
