Aviation Security Capstone Course
3
The Aviation Security Capstone Course is the culminating effort of the student's entire learning experience. The student will complete a project that provides significant evidence of experience in aviation security studies. Students will work with designated faculty members to formulate, develop, and complete the aviation security project. The completion of the Capstone Course is designed to document significant evidence that Program Outcomes have been met, and provides the student evidence of experience to show to current and prospective employers. The Capstone Course will be taken at the end of the student's degree program as the final course of the degree program.

The goal of the Aviation Security Capstone course is to provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate they have met Program Outcomes. Students will work on an individual project that is aligned with the required degree Program Outcomes. Projects will require extensive research that supports the project and Program Outcomes. Students are required to present and defend their project.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
