Capstone: Advanced Projects in Policy, Management, Finance, and Advocacy I
Couples with CAP-GP 3402. For MPA-PNP students.
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. 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.
MPA-PNP students must complete all five degree core, plus 2 of the 3 required for their specialization.
For Advocacy, Finance, and International: Any 2 of the 3 required for the specialization are fine.
For Policy: PADM-GP 2140 and PADM-GP 2171 are strongly recommended as the 2 courses to complete prior to capstone.
For Management: PADM-GP 2110 and PADM-GP 2170 are strongly recommended as the 2 courses to complete prior to capstone.
