WHAT IS THE BAAS CAPSTONE?

The BAAS Capstone is a two-sequence course that students take in their final semester of the BAAS degree. The two courses are taken in the same semester. OCED 4360 is taken in the first 8-week session, OCED 4361 is taken in the second 8-week session.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN THE CLASSES?

Both courses are writing intensive, which means at least 60% of your course grade comes from written assignments as opposed to exams. You will be responsible for a literature review of a common workplace problem, a group project with your peers in the class, as well as many self-reflective assignments and assessments.

WHAT IMPORTANT RULES DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE CAPSTONE?

OCED 4360 and 4361 are required in order to graduate from the BAAS program. You must pass OCED 4360 in order to remain enrolled in OCED 4361. You must take both courses from the same instructor.

HOW DO I REGISTER FOR MY CAPSTONE COURSES?

In order to receive the necessary overrides to register for OCED 4360 and 4361, you must verify with Academic Advising that you will be in your final semester when you enroll in the capstone courses.
