New capstone cowurses to
By KIM WEAVER
Ten capstone courses in the College
ol Arts and Sciences' new curriculum
will be offered to students next semester.
"Capstone courses are intei discipli
nary courses that look at one field in
depth." said Cynthia Dessen, assistant
to the associate dean of general edu
cation. "The idea is that they cap' your'
education, or round it off. A capstone
is a crowning architectural ornament
which completes a structure."
Capstone courses are used to fullfill
the five B.A. level requirements in the
new curriculum, but they may be taken
by students in their major field, Dessen
said. Although they are designed
primarily for juniors and seniors, they
may be taken by sophomores as elec
tives, she said.
Thirty capstone courses have been
created, but only a few are offered each
semester, she said. The courses involve
small classes generally from 30 to
50 people but are not the advanced
level courses some students believe they
are, she said.
"They are intended for students who
are curious, intelligent and well
educated, but not necessarily a specialist
in the field," she said.
Dessen said priority was not given
to any field when deciding which
capstone courses to submit to the new
"We're open to accepting any course
a department considers interdiscipli
nary, or any course that looks at the
value systems behind that field of
study," she said.

While you're in school, you'll serve 45 days a year on active duty, gaining
valuable medical experience. After graduation, you will serve three or more
years, the length depending on the requirements of the Service selected and
years of scholarship assistance received. " '
As an Armed Forces physician you'll receive officer's pay and benefits, and
enjoy the advantages of working regular hours. You'll also see a diversity of
patients and have opportunities to use sophisticated medical technology.
