MHUM 448. Senior Capstone. 3 Hours.

Designed by the student, the Capstone Project combines an understanding of Medical Humanities with interdisciplinary study in two disciplines of the student's choice. Often the project will take the form of a traditional research paper (20-30 pages), but works of fiction or drama, field studies, multi-media presentations, or other formats are acceptable, subject to the coordinators' approval. Projects other than research papers must be accompanied by a bibliography of sources and a 5-10 page statement explaining goals, results, and research methods. Students will defend their final project before a committee of three faculty members, consisting normally of two teaching courses in the Medical Humanities program and one outside reader; these defenses will be open to the Wofford community.
