SustainabilityThesis or Capstone

Students in the Sustainability program will choose between a thesis or a capstone as the final requirement to complete a degree. 

If you choose the thesis track, you'll work independently with a Thesis Director to conduct in-depth research on a topic relevant to your professional plans. You'll emerge with a solid understanding of how scientific research is executed and communicated - producing publishable, quality results.

In the capstone track, you work in a classroom setting to apply knowledge and skills obtained in the program to design a significant, hands-on, applied research project - or you'll design and execute a real-world consulting project for an industry client in need of an innovative sustainable solution to a pressing business need.
