Walsh University Graduate Catalog 2013-2014
THEO 701 Integration Project 3 sem. hrs.
Typically a capstone project will have a pastoral as well as a significant theological foundation. The student will craft an artifact (approximately 25 pages in length), under the mentorship of a professor that will reflect appropriate goals, have a firm theological foundation, will address appropriate models and be adequately comprehensive to the topic to be addressed. Although the capstone project format may vary according to the nature of the topic to be explored, scholarly and academic standards are expected throughout. The student is not expected to conduct research with the expansive rigor of a full six-hour Master’s thesis or a doctoral dissertation. However, he or she is expected to demonstrate both familiarity with scholarly literature and growing expertise in the chosen area. The student will be responsible for proof-reading the final work, checking for clear grammar, academically appropriate style, expressing oneself clearly and effectively, and exploring abstract thinking. The hope is that the project will flow not only from the student’s theological, but his or her pastoral interests as well. In this vein, it may be a program, project, model or structure that he or she may institute or employ in his or her field of interest upon graduation.
