About the Capstone Project

At USF Sarasota-Manatee, students pursuing degrees in the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences, as well as those in the honors program, produce capstone projects toward the conclusion of their course of study. The exact nature of these capstone projects differs according to major, but all provide students with the opportunity to synthesize and apply what they have learned in their courses, as well as to demonstrate their mature skills of critical thinking and scholarly presentation. USF Sarasota-Manatee is proud of the work produced by its students and wishes to communicate that pride to the public. Further, it wishes to encourage USFSM students to trust in their abilities and to respect their own accomplishment. Archiving the work of USFSM graduates, and with their permission, making this work accessible to the public communicates that message.
