Students pursuing the undergraduate Minor in Translation Studies have two options to receive credit for the capstone project.
The first option is to design and complete your capstone project as an independent study, either in the fall or winter term (we allow registration for spring/summer term only in special circumstances). You will register for COMPLIT 497 (Translation Studies Undergraduate Capstone). All students who take COMPLIT 497 must complete a project proposal, progress report, and summary in addition to their project. Review the Capstone Project Checklist for details.
The second option is to register for COMPLIT 495 (Senior Seminar in Comparative Literature, offered only in the fall semester). As a student in this class, you will have an opportunity to develop and complete your capstone translation project as part of your coursework, in regular consultation with the faculty member teaching the course. But it is important to understand that the Senior Seminar is not necessarily devoted to translation studies, and you will be responsible for all the coursework. Students must submit an abstract of their final paper or project for the class the Wednesday after fall break.
