Students Studying Flowers

In addition to a thesis or alternate plan paper, some graduate programs offer a capstone that may include one, or a combination of, the following:

  • Portfolio
  • Internship
  • Manuscript
  • Capstone course
  • Design project
  • Comprehensive exam
  • Special project
  • Published book*

These capstone experiences are typically not required to be submitted to the College of Graduate Studies and Research upon completion. See a specific program or department for its capstone option.

*Published books may be submitted to the Graduate College in place of manuscript copies if the published book is completed during the student's program, three signature pages are provided with the required copies of the published book, and the student successfully completes the work during the degree program.
