Capstone, Integration and Mentorship

Throughout the certificate program you will work on a capstone project that integrates all of the learning from the program and applies it to your professional practice. In essence, this course serves as a blank canvas for you to design and implement a real-world evaluation project that adds value to your organization, client or portfolio. You will work with an instructor/mentor who will help you identify, scope and scale a project that tests your learning edges while still being manageable within the 10-month duration of the program.
