Capstone Profile: Ellen Moore (AS ’14)
Wondering how you can incorporate your semester abroad experience with your Capstone project? Talk to Ellen Moore (AS ’14) who spent a semester in South Africa and has since won a Crown Wise Award which will fund a return trip during which she’ll complete her field work and data collection. Ellen is using focus groups and in-depth individual interviews to “craft a narrative of how women [in South Africa] not only perceive their own agency but also the barriers that prevent them from exercising it, regardless of what they are guaranteed by their progressive Constitution.” Ellen is proof that the best Capstones organically relate all aspects of a student’s interests. Think it’s not possible for you to pull that off? Talk to Ellen, your academic advisors, favorite teachers, or an Honors Advisor today. Even better, talk to all of us!
