Geography Capstones

GEOG 496 – Senior Thesis Geography Capstone

All undergraduate geography majors must complete a capstone experience as required by WVU. The capstone experience must occur in the junior or senior year depending upon the option selected. Ideally, the capstone experience is taken after completing all other required geography core courses. The geography capstone requirement is only fulfilled by taking GEOG 496, Senior Thesis, a course offered every fall semester. The GEOG 496 course usually consists of students working together on a joint research project.
