Beginning in 2015, the Department of Counselor Education made changes to their end-of-program project requirements. Previously, every end-of-program project was a Master’s Thesis. Now students have the option of completing either a Master’s Thesis or a Capstone Research Project. The Capstone Research Project will entail a program evaluation or action research project in which students collect and analyze data. Unlike the Master’s Thesis, the Capstone Research Project will include a shorter, more focused literature review than those in previous Master’s Theses. Both the Master’s Thesis and the Capstone Research Project options will require IRB approval.
