LAS 401 - Independent Liberal Arts Capstone
A liberal arts capstone to synthesize and summarize a student’s general education (GE) experience and apply said experience in service to the community. This course is intended to provide students with formal opportunities to complete 1) an independent service or community-oriented project, 2) their GE portfolio containing written and/or oral (recorded) artifacts from multiple GE courses that demonstrate the ELOs, and 3) a portfolio reflection that includes synthesis of the liberal arts and ELOs and consideration for the value of community involvement and GE curriculum.
Note: The service project may be completed during the winter or summer break immediately preceding the term in which students have registered for LAS 401. Students shall submit the Capstone Service Project Proposal to the instructor for the LAS 401 section for which they are registered by December 1st or May 1st, respectively.
