Freshmen & Sophomore Steps


You are here

Freshman and sophomore capstone steps:

  1. Attend the freshman capstone group advising meeting. During this meeting we will introduce you to the capstone experience and provide you with some of the basics on how capstone will look when the time comes.

  2. Contact and have a conversation with a faculty member who conducts research in some area that is of interest to you. You do not need to produce an idea for what you want to study yet, just make a connection, and engage them in a 20 minute conversation about their scholarship.

  3. Write and submit a 500 word Discussion Summary that summarizes what you learned and what topics you found interesting. These could be areas of study for your capstone, but they definitely do not have to be. This work is not a commitment. You may well change majors, colleges, or interest areas next year already.

    1. Freshmen: Submit UH Discussion Summary Form by the last day of March your freshman year.

    2. Sophomores: Submit UH Discussion Summary Form by the last day of March your sophomore year.

  4. Attend the Senior Capstone Poster Presentations in the spring. This will help you prepare for your capstone by learning more about what other UH students have done for their capstone projects.
