The Masters in Leadership Studies Capstone Project Papers are designed to provide Master’s students with an opportunity to demonstrate the integration and application of their learning throughout their program through an applied or research-based project.
Applied projects offer a design, program or process to address a challenge, issue or topic. Applied projects require students to apply the conceptual and practical knowledge they have gained in the program to address a “real-life” problem or issue, without requiring an extensive literature review or research methodology development.
Research projects focus on developing a more in depth understanding of an issue, interest, concern, or phenomenon. The research includes a miniature literature review on the topic and provides explanations of the implications and applications for future practice in the related field.
