Honors students are expected to take the capstone course unless excused from the course by the class mentor. Early graduation or a conflict between the capstone course and a course required for graduation are examples of reasons for being excused from the capstone. Exemption from the capstone is at the discretion of the class mentor. If exempted, honors students should take H499 to complete this requirement. MSCH-H451 and MSCH-H499 may both be taken if desired.
Because content will vary depending on the design of the course, the capstone may count as either a skills class or a research elective. This decision will be left to the class mentor who will teach the course.
