URB 699 - Capstone Course (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: To be completed in the student’s last semester
This course is an opportunity for students to integrate and synthesize the body of knowledge acquired in courses leading to completion of the M.A. in Urban Studies. Students will work with the instructor to develop an interdisciplinary or multi-disciplinary capstone project that demonstrates the student’s command of subject matter and literature covered in the courses. The project may take various forms, including independent or group research; an annotated literature review; or a media presentation. All projects must include an extensive bibliography and an analytic essay. Classroom sessions will alternate with independent supervised research and project development, including periodic submission of drafts.
