Capstone: Advanced Projects in Urban Planning II

CAP-GP.3602, 1.5 points.

Semester: Spring


Continuation of CAP-GP.3601.

As part of the core curriculum of the NYU Wagner Masters program, Capstone teams spend an academic year addressing challenges and identifying opportunities for a client organization or conducting research on a pressing social question. Wagner's Capstone program provides students with a centerpiece of their graduate experience whereby they are able to experience first-hand turning the theory of their studies into practice under the guidance of an experienced faculty member. Projects require students to get up-to-speed quickly on a specific content or issue area; enhance key process skills including project management and teamwork; and develop competency in gathering, analyzing, and reporting out on data. Capstone requires students to interweave their learning in all these areas, and to do so in real time, in an unpredictable, complex, real-world environment.


Completion of Urban Planning core and three schoolwide core courses, Professional Experience Requirement (if applicable), and 3.0 GPA.
