African/African American Studies (AAAS)

AAAS 448. Capstone Project: African/African American Studies. 3 Hours.

Designed by the student, the Capstone Project combines an understanding of African/African American theory 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 African/African American Studies program and one outside reader; these defenses will be open to the Wofford community. Permission of the coordinator is required.
