Capstone Research Project Course (IDS 6935)
The Capstone Research Project course provides academic flexibility and viable alternatives to capstone internships. This course is designed to give students a rich and diverse research experience. The capstone research project should be practical research, using quantitative or qualitative methods, with or without human subjects. Each capstone research project will be supervised by your Concentration Director or another qualified USF faculty member. PCGS students are expected to complete the course IDS 6272 – Research Methods for Sustainability before registering for IDS 6935 – Capstone Research Project.
Students will demonstrate the ability to apply the concepts and principles of sustainability to socially, environmentally, or economically based research issues.
Students will demonstrate the ability to conduct research on local, national, regional, or global issues related to their academic concentration, and offer recommendations and solutions to sustainability problems based on research findings.
