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.

Before entering the core term, students must have successfully completed all 1000, 2000 and 3000 level core courses in Community Development and be of 4th year standing. 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.
