ATHL 6902 - Capstone Project

The purpose of the capstone is for students to demonstrate their ability to apply theory to practice and to demonstrate the synthesis of advanced knowledge in a practice area. Given the curriculum philosophy and design, each capstone project will intersect with the didactic portions of the curriculum including the course series pertaining to practice, research, and program development. Since students will bring previous life and professional experiences to the program and will receive assistance and direction from their faculty mentor, each capstone project will be individualized and developed according to several influences. As students develop and assimilate the professional knowledge and attitudes of a clinician, the capstone projects will likely be influenced by other scholarly projects in the curriculum. Conceptually and temporally, the capstone projects fit into the overall developmental progression for each student in the program. 3 credits.
