Virtual Capstone Spring 2022

Virtual Thesis and Capstone


Due to campus closure, the School of Public Affairs will conduct all Thesis and Capstone efforts virtually.  Students can join us for a fully online orientation, and will later have the opportunity to present remotely. 

We will highlight orientation materials, as well as final presentations. Information will be updated often, so check out the information below.
