The Arts and Social Sciences Capstone is a multi-disciplinary course that provides students with the opportunity to reflect on their disciplinary studies over the previous three levels of study. As well as demonstrating their understanding of the major theoretical and methodological principles within their discipline, students will consider the ethical and social responsibilities associated with their area of study and will have looked to the future to understand how their studies have prepared them for a career or further study. The assessment tasks in the course are designed to allow students to demonstrate that they have met the Graduate Attributes for their area of study.

Students have the opportunity to think about their own discipline and to share their knowledge and understanding with students from other disciplines.

The course will be made available for Summer session providing more flexibility for students meeting this final requirement of their program/major stream. For students for whom summer is not your last session of enrolment you must obtain approval from your major convenor to enrol in the capstone provided you have completed the necessary courses in your major stream.

Enrolment in the capstone requires faculty approval. Please contact the Faculty Student Centre (Ground Floor, Morven Brown,, 9385 2289).
