SFS 35100 - SFS Capstone Project

Credit Hours: 1.00. The SFS Capstone Project is a directed-learning course that will require students to prepare and present a sustainability analysis of a farm enterprise, most likely the enterprise at which they conduct their required summer internship, and this may be an internship approved at an operation other than a farm. Students will be required to analyze and enterprise taking into account its economic, environmental and social sustainability, and its broader role in sustaining the local and regional economy, environment and community. The analysis will be prepared as a paper and a presentation that will be given to the undergraduates of the SFS program at an SFS program meeting. The paper and the presentation will be prepared in consultation with a faculty mentor from the SFS program committee and will be graded by the faculty mentor. Typically offered Fall Spring Summer.
