Course Description
This course requires the student to study a topic of their own choice, discuss their progress with the class in regular meetings and to deliver a final paper that meets the following criteria: 1. Makes an argument, describes or summarizes a position that is unique, original, or which directly applies to the student; 2. Uses primary sources or applies to a primary organization as much as possible; 3. Conforms to the style and format of good academic writing and the MSOD Capstone Presentation Guidelines; 4. Allows a student to demonstrate competencies gained from the courses completed in the Organizational Dynamics program. The role of the capstone professors is to coordinate the development of each student's capstone committee, to offer facilitation during peer-review discussion, to discuss the student's work as the capstone is written. A course professor may also be the student's primary advisor or a reader. For details about the capstone course, including delivery dates, please see the DYNM Canvas community site.
