LSM 450 LSM - Culminating Experience     (0 credits)

The culminating project will demonstrate students' transdisciplinary insights, connections and understandings as a consequence of their work within their concentration. Students choose their culminating experience in consultation with their LSM advisor. Possibilities include, but are not limited to: An essay demonstrating what the student has pulled together from the LSM, with cross-disciplinary insights within the LSM and/or between the LSM and their major, a project that demonstrates the student’s understanding of the core concepts and connections of the concentration. Examples include a play or short story, a piece of artwork, a web page design, a scientific experiment and analysis, or an academic conference presentation that draws on and illustrates one or more key concepts of a particular LSM. If such a project is put forward as the unifying piece, the student will also include an explanation demonstrating how it fits within the LSM as a whole. Students must fill out the LSM 450 form, have it approved by their LSM advisor and submit it to the Registrar's Office. The LSM 450 is typically completed in students' last year.
