MASc Capstone Projects

On our MASc in Global Sustainable Development, students have the opportunity to ‘learn by doing’ through a transdisciplinary capstone project. We offer a choice of research, practice, and work-based experiences. The capstone project enables students to develop a skillset most suited to their future career goals.

What are the MASc capstone projects?

Workplace Project

Using an agreed work placement which students source with an outside organisation, students think through issues of personal and institutional change-making and transition. Our department's Employability and Placement Manager will be available to support students throughout this project and offer advice in their search and application to organisations, as well as during their placement.

Practice-based Project

Students engage across campus or beyond with Warwick’s pioneering sustainability agenda or other organisations’ sustainability aspirations and plans. Working closely with sustainability practitioners, students act as a sustainability consultant within a defined organisational area, appraising, assessing and formulating proposals, which would lead sustainable transformations.
