Capstone Project for Study Abroad and International Internship Students
Every Western Oregon University student who studies abroad or who participates in an international internship completes a 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 or international internship experience once they return, and to assist them in articulating why the experience mattered both to themselves and to potential employers.
Students may access the capstone syllabus and the assignment handouts using the links below.
