Macaulay Honors College, classroom 3N

(The spring session of this course is open only to those students who were enrolled in the course in the fall).

Rather than requiring seniors to demonstrate what they have learned in a final thesis or capstone project, Macaulay offers an opportunity to create a springboard—an open-ended project that builds on knowledge acquired and opens possibilities for ongoing learning.

The experience includes a year-long, six-credit workshop that helps students prepare projects that:

  • Ask questions, pose dilemmas, and propose specific research pathways toward continued learning
  • Require independent research and writing
  • Foster collaborative critique
  • Unite disciplines rather than focusing on only one field of study

Springboard projects are presented publicly, at a national conference, to expand our students’ academic networks and encourage two-way communication with a wide audience..
