The MFS Capstone Program is designed to challenge and inspire students who wish to pursue advanced study in a particular field. Beginning in the spring semester of junior year and running through the middle of senior year, the program asks participants to produce scholarly work by engaging in independent research and/or creative development under the guidance of a MFS faculty member.
Participants meet weekly with their advisors but complete the bulk of the work on their own. All projects culminate in a public demonstration, which may take the form of an academic presentation/defense or a creative performance. A typical project will require a minimum of 40 hours of work.
