Review and Critique of Capstone Courses

Melonçon, L. and Schreiber, J. (2018). Advocating for sustainability: A report on and critique of the undergraduate capstone course. Technical Communication Quarterly, 27(4), 322-335.

The authors provide an overview of what capstone courses do by presenting

information from across the field based on materials received from and

interviews with technical and professional communication program administrators

and faculty. The authors then point to opportunities to improve

the course. Finally, the authors argue for sustainable program development

as the theoretical framework to perform programmatic work.
