Home / Thrive at ASU / Senior Capstones

Spanning everything from a thesis to a performance to an art exhibit, capstones are culminating experiences, usually in senior year, that bring together the full wealth of a learner’s experiences.

74%
of ASU undergraduate degree recipients graduate with a capstone experience.
Participation in senior capstones improves skills in writing, oral communication, project management, and research.
Senior capstones are “transformative learning experience because of their positive contributions to desired learning outcomes,” and a “high-impact practice”.
