In your final year at Coker, it’s time to show the world how far you’ve come. You’ll complete your major with a capstone course or other advanced academic experience, then present your intellectual achievements through a thesis, recital, performance, or other public presentation.

By the time you graduate, you’ve challenged your personal boundaries with study away and cultural experiences. You’ve applied your knowledge in the real world with internships or community service. You’ve demonstrated your growth through a unique capstone experience.

You’ve transformed your life. Now, you’ll graduate ready to transform the world.



As a final project before graduation, students apply the knowledge and experience they’ve gained throughout their previous years at Coker, both in and out of the classroom, to a capstone project. Capstone experiences are an advanced form of scholarly activity where students use the academic and professional skills developed over the course of the undergraduate career, culminating in a scholarly work that is presented in a public forum.

Each student’s unique capstone experience is completely tailored to his or her personal academic and career goals. It’s a demonstration of knowledge and skills, challenging students to communicate and share what they’ve learned and who they’ve become.
