This course is designed to allow students in the Department of Communication Arts & Science to conduct a self-directed project resulting in an original work related to their specific areas of study. This outcome could include (but is not limited to) conducting a full research study, preparing a public relations plan for an outside client, designing a health campaign, and/or writing a major paper. This process culminates with a public senior defense of the work produced. Required of all majors in the department with the exception of co-majors and pre-counseling majors. This course may be repeated for credit.
