Successful completion of IDS 210 Interdisciplinary Capstone Project (3 credits) is a requirement of the Doral College Associate in Arts degree and fulfills academic program outcome six: “the student will participate in a project that incorporates the liberal arts curriculum in order to demonstrate the application and value of an interdisciplinary educational approach”. This course requires students to complete an interdisciplinary research-based project that combines at least two of disciplines addressed by the College’s academic program. Prior to this course, students must complete the Introduction to Capstone Research course (IDS 209– 1 credit) in which they initiate the process of defining a research topic. Considered the culminating effort of a student’s study with the College, the Capstone Project requires students to incorporate a variety of the skills they have mastered, including oral communication, synthesis, and in-depth research.
