Senior Project (BIS 399) (3 credits)

BIS Index Page

All BIS students must complete the BIS 399 Senior Project. This capstone experience for BIS students provides a structure that enables the student to integrate knowledge and skills from coursework and related experiences, with a research project or field experience.  The project must be designed so that it allows the student to demonstrate the relationship of subject matter, theory and practice.  Students are required to meet with the BIS Coordinator at least one semester prior to registering for the project, to discuss the guidelines for the course and the project proposal. This written proposal must meet with the approval of both an appropriate faculty advisor and the BIS Coordinator before the student can register for BIS 399.

Recent projects have included designing websites for various non-profit organizations, developing business plans that can be submitted to a bank for funding, traditional research papers on various topics, and several projects that integrated academic work with a community practicum.
