In many cases, the Honors Capstone Project will take the form of a thesis and include a carefully prepared argument in support of the thesis statement. Rather than a thesis, students in certain fields of study (e.g., graphic design) may choose to design a capstone project. Such a project must also include an initial proposal that will support the design of that project.
