New capstone cowurses to By KIM WEAVER Staft Water 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 curriculum. "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.

"Our goal is to unite different socially responsible groups," Tameler said. "There's always some common ground between groups that work on related issues. . . .We wanted to pull the groups together so they can work together and support each other, and improve publicity for all the groups," he said. The organization consists of a central committee as well as member organizations such as the Black Student Movement, the Campus Gay and Lesbian Association, and the Carolina Committee on Central America.

"We sent invita tions to different organizations to come talk about things they had in common," Tameler said. Issues are brought up at weekly meetings, and CAN organizes sup port for the concerned organization. "Organizations are more likely to keep up their efforts if they get the kind of support we offer," Tameler said. But organizaitions decide for themselves what issues they support. Anderson said, "Anytime you have such a large, diverse group, there won't be complete agreements all the time." "We talk about an issue and leave it up to the individual group to get involved," she said.

"There are some clear-cut issues that we (CGLA) cannot speak out on because of our members," said Cathy E'Dalgo, publicity coordina tor of the CGLA. "We have members on both sides of many important issues." Tameler said CAN helped out during the anti-apartheid rally on Oct. 1 1 . "The rally was a big success," Tapller said.
