Capstones are an established part of undergraduate curricula. Often a requirement in degree programs, these investigative and research-based projects stress relevance and practicality. They are, thus, often promoted as necessities; they demand critical thinking, clear analytic writing, methodological application, and for those projects collaborative in their structure, teamwork and negotiation.
