Course details

In this second of three capstone graduation courses, and under the supervision of the course instructor, you will implement the graduation project proposal developed in FSCT8611. You will apply the chosen research methodology and collect the requisite data needed to answer the research questions of interest. At defined intervals, you must present your progress orally to the class and in writing to the course instructor, and prepare a formal research paper (akin to a scientific publication). You must complete this phase of the project to a satisfactory level, as determined by the course instructor, program coordinator, and subject matter expert (where applicable) before registering for the third and final course, FSCT8631.
