4th Year Core Term
The final term in the program is a special capstone opportunity for students to integrate their learning of academic concepts and knowledge, field research and professional work experience. It prepares and transitions students to professional roles in community and organizational settings. Students take the term as a block with 15 credit hours exclusively in the Community Development program.
This is the capstone term for Community Development that is designed to link academic theory and concepts, fieldwork experiences and professional work settings and responsibilities. It prepares students for professional roles in community and organizational settings.
Before entering the core term, students must have successfully completed all 1000, 2000 and 3000 level core courses in Community Development. It is not possible to overload and take other courses in the term given the intensive nature of the schedule. Students should take winter term elective courses of interest in their second and third years as they are not accessible to them in the fourth year.
