Your LEEP Capstone will draw on all you’ve learned during your time at Clark — and help prove to the world that you’re ready to make an impact after graduation.
You’ll complete a LEEP Capstone in your major independently or as part of a group. This endeavor will involve advanced work that addresses a significant issue, problem, or theme in your field — or in the world. It can take the form of a thesis or project; in consultation with a faculty adviser, you will define and carry forward the project on your own initiative.
Your LEEP Capstone will require all of the skills and knowledge you acquired during your first three years at Clark. Completing it will demonstrate your mastery of the LEEP Learning Outcomes and signal to professors, employers, and graduate programs that you are ready to make extraordinary contributions in your discipline, workplace, and community. Furthermore, you are encouraged to document your work publicly to better share your effort and achievements. This could involve chronicling your experience through a blog, submitting a paper to an academic journal, or presenting at a research conference or at Clark’s Academic Spree Day.
