The Capstone in Film and Media Studies is a four credit course. The course is taken over the fall and the spring semester of senior year and is required in order to complete the Film and Media Studies Minor. Students take FMST 4970: Capstone I in the fall and FMST 4971: Capstone II in the spring.
The Capstone is an opportunity for students to explore their own interests in the field of Film and Media Studies. FMST 4970: Capstone I leads students through the necessary stages of choosing a dynamic working group, conceptualizing a capstone topic, choosing a project advisor, and planning a research strategy in order to make the time devoted to the capstone in the spring semester as efficient and productive as possible. In FMST 4971: Capstone II, students work individually or on groups to actualize their research.
