GED 8495 - Capstone Thesis

The capstone thesis is the culmination of an MA student’s work at Hamline University. It is generally an applied research project conducted in the student’s school or workplace. The student works closely with an administrative advisor to construct the research, carry out the research, and complete the project. The capstone committee offers additional support throughout the process.  Registration requires advisor and committee members’ signatures. Capstone registration materials, timelines, and formatting guidelines are found in the Capstone Completion Guide and Capstone Formatting Guide, which are available online. If you have questions, please contact the Advanced Degrees Department program administrator.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of GED 8023 or GED 8035 (Literacy Education).

Credits: 4

Note: Students have 3 consecutive terms, starting with and including the term of registration, to complete Capstone Thesis. Financial aid and in-school deferment on student loans are only available for the term in which the registration is posted.
