Students completing the Capstone Track in their Master’s of Marine Affairs program will be delivering their findings and final report to the School of Marine & Environmental Affairs community this Friday (March 5th).
After a year of preparation, research, analysis, and reporting, Capstone projects culminate in a 25-30 minute presentation where the Capstone Project Team delivers their work to the client. Capstone projects are meant to provide a collaborative space for students to work together to address a “real world” issue, and provides practical experience for students to hone their professional skills.
