Macaulay Honors College, Online
Course Code: MHC 355
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..
