The MALS Capstone Project is accompanied by a 20-page paper that details the conceptualization, methodology, and/or technology used in the project and how the project is related to the student’s track and studies. All graduating students must submit their manuscript and any supplementary files to CUNY Academic Works to be archived by the Graduate Center Library. Graduates producing capstone projects with significant online components (e.g., a website) should review the guidelines for depositing digital work and complete the digital component submission form.
The format guidelines for capstone projects are the same as those required for theses and dissertations; these are available in detail on the Format Requirements page of this guide. All manuscripts should be uploaded to CUNY Academic Works in PDF format and must include elements in the following page sequence, with close attention to the pagination requirements:
Title page (no pagination appears)
Copyright page (see sample pages below)
Approval page (uploaded without signatures; deliver signed original, in hardcopy, to the library)
Preface, Foreword, and/or Acknowledgments
Table of Contents (required)
Lists of tables, illustrations, charts, figures, diagrams (required)
Body of Text (begins with Arabic numeral 1)
Autobiographical Statement (optional)
Note: additional preliminary pages may be required for projects with significant digital components in the submission. See the library's Digital Project Documentation Guidelines below.
Every graduate of the Audiology program is required to prepare a capstone project to be preserved by the Graduate Center Library. A preliminary review meeting prior to defense is optional. See Format for Deposit guidelines for specifications about depositing in any file format, adding supplementary files, and pagination. Capstone projects are deposited in CUNY Academic Works only (not ProQuest).
