Certificate in writing students must choose from the four options below to complete the capstone requirement. Students enrolled in the literary publishing track may fulfill their capstone requirement by enrolling in WRIT:3000 Publishing Practicum, or by completing one of the options below in a way that is substantially related to publishing.
On-campus students must attend a MANDATORY information session about the capstone in the semester before they plan to enroll in the option of their choosing. Online students must make a phone appointment with the certificate advisor to discuss capstone options. Info session times and locations are communicated to declared certificate students via email each semester. If you are working towards the certificate but have not officially declared it, we won't know to contact you; please be sure to declare the certificate in MyUI under Student Records.
All capstone students are invited to share their work and celebrate their completion of the certificate at the Capstone Reading and Reception which takes place at Prairie Lights on the Friday of finals week each spring semester.
