Students will complete a capstone project that will be designed to meet a need of either the student's current workplace or a selected human service agency and may include program development, evaluation or other research needs identified by the agency. The student's project will have a practical application and benefit to the host organization. The capstone may be more of a creative project, such as an executive position paper, a documentary project or designing a new program based on quantitative or qualitative data from a variety of sources. Students may also complete a practicum/internship project that is an intensive mentored experience in the field of homeland security. Students are assigned an individual faculty member who will provide guidance throughout the process.
