Off-Campus Experience
 We believe that these experiences are critical to the
understanding of the humanities and arts in
culture and society
 Students must complete one off-campus
experience during the program:
 An internship
 A study abroad experience
 A university summer program
(arts focus students may also use music lessons or art experiences for the
OCE)
 Private art lessons ( Arts Focus Students)
Senior Independent Project
The Humanities & Arts Program capstone experience is called the
Senior Independent Project (SIP). Students choose
• extended research essay (18-20 pages) OR
• major art project with a short research essay (8-10 pages)
• Prepares students for the independent research, writing,
and oral presentation skills expected by universities
• students give an oral defense of their work to a faculty
panel
Extended Essay
Examples
 “The New Suburban Marketplace: New Urbanism, Retailing, and
Community in the Internet Age”
 “A Bullet-Riddled Defeat: An In Depth Analysis of the Failures of the
Merida Initiative in Dealing with the Mexican Drug War”
 “Who Gives a Tweet?: The Social and Psychological Impact of Social
Media on the Mobile Generation”
 “The Final Solution: An Analysis of German Passivity towards the Jews
during the Holocaust from a Historical and Psychological Perspective”
Short Essay/Creative Projects
