Culminating Experience

The culminating experience is the final project that students present at the end of the program and is related to their concentration. Through the culminating experience, students make a creative contribution to, and/or define and solve a problem that exists in, the profession. It is a major part of the master's program, and represents the educational journey students take throughout the year. Projects take shape and evolve throughout all three semesters, and the final presentation can be a research project, a creative work, or a practical project.
