Study Abroad Capstone Project
Every Western Oregon University student who studies abroad completes a study abroad capstone project. The purpose of the project is to prepare students for success abroad, to enhance their cultural observation skills, to facilitate their reflection on the impact of the study abroad experience once they return, and to assist them in articulating why the experience mattered.
Students may access the capstone syllabus and the assignment handouts using the links below.
