Mahurin Honors College at WKU

Capstone Experience/Thesis


The Capstone Experience/Thesis (CE/T) is an independent project where you combine your personal passion and career goals into an opportunity to work closely with your favorite professor on a research project or creative endeavor. Students may choose to complete the Capstone Experience/Thesis for 6 hours of credit and will be Honors College graduates, OR those choosing the Non-CE/T Option may take 6 additional hours of Honors Upper Division in their major and will be Honors Program graduates.



CE/Ts in the past have included such projects as:

  • A set of costume designs
  • Financial audit of a Fortune 500 company
  • Original novellas and screenplays
  • Neurological studies of fish species
  • Photography portfolios
  • A series of interactive lesson plans for high school science classes
  • Environmental sustainability in a Kenyan village
