3 Credit(s)
This course is designed to be a "culminating" experience in the undergraduate Community Psychology degree.  Students will create a final assessment portfolio which will include artifacts documenting academic/professional growth and personal reflections.  Students will also assess the impact of their educational experiences on their ethical perspectives and critical thinking skills. Students will reflect on and evaluate their personal and professional growth, the benefits of lifelong learning, and the impact of these elements on their future.  This is also the second (of two) Fieldwork courses.  Students will continue at their previous fieldwork site and will incorporate their Signature Assignment from Fieldwork 1 course into their final Capstone project.
