The capstone study seminar enables junior or senior majors to design, in consultation with a Classical Studies faculty member, a culminating project aligned with their interests, previous curricular experience, and/or future goals. The results of a student’s capstone study is submitted as a written report and shared with all Classical Studies majors in a presentation that might include written, oral, and/or digital formats. Capstone studies should demonstrate that a student can locate and evaluate information about the ancient world in both traditional and digital forms and present his or her findings clearly and logically.

(2) Demonstrate capacity to locate and evaluate information about the ancient world in both traditional and digital forms. (3) Present findings both in clear and logical written form and in an oral presentation at a final Capstone Seminar meeting of Classical Studies majors.
