The capstone project, which may take many forms, draws on and extends knowledge, skills of analysis, and creative achievement developed through previous academic work. In consultation with faculty, the student identifies an area to be explored and proposes a method of inquiry appropriate to the topic. The project should include a reflection on the body of literature or the conceptual framework to which it is a contribution. Some component of the project must be shared with the College community through posters, presentations, or other means. This requirement may be satisfied by completing eight credit hours of the St. Mary’s Project in any discipline or cross-disciplinary study area. The project is supervised by a faculty mentor, appointed by the program chair. This course is repeatable for up to a total of 4 credit hours for NEUR 493 and 4 credit hours for NEUR 494. Prerequisite: NEUR 201 with a grade of C or better; PSYC 206 or BIOL 311 with a grade of C or better; Approval of faculty mentor and program chair of the student’s major(s). Consult faculty mentor for project guidelines.
