Capstone Courses

The Capstone Experience for Majors in Undergraduate Degree Programs in the Division of Animal & Nutritional Sciences in the Davis College of Agriculture, Forestry and Consumer Sciences

West Virginia University requires a capstone experience, which will allow graduating students to integrate skills and knowledge that they have acquired, specifically in Animal & Nutritional Sciences, with newly acquired knowledge in a significant project.

The capstone experiences will occur during the student’s last year or in the summer prior to graduation. This requirement will be met by completion of either the course in Values and Ethics in Agriculture & Forestry (ANS 402), a senior research thesis (ANS 496), or an internship (ANS 491) either as a service learning or international project or as a study abroad experience. Each student will develop a proposal for an internship or senior thesis in consultation with a supervising academic adviser.
