Most H&S students take their ICC capstone course in their own department, but they also have the option to take IISP 49800 the H&S Core Curriculum Capstone to satisfy this requirement. This capstone course satisfies the ICC capstone requirement, and is intended for H&S students whose programs or departments do not offer a capstone course through the major, or who are unable to fit the department-based course into their schedules.

The H&S school-wide capstone course is overseen the the H&S General Education committee and the H&S Dean's office. We typically offer two sections each fall, and between 4 and 6 sections each spring, and every year, we solicit H&S faculty members to teach these sections. Each section of this one-credit, graded course is capped at 18-20 students. Scheduling the format and time of these sections is flexible, but it is important that we provide a number of formats and a number of sections outside of prime time, to facilitate enrollment for the wide variety of students who need this course. We encourage faculty interested in this teaching opportunity to incorporate this course into their flexible faculty workload plans, but overload compensation is a possibility.

If you are interested in teaching a section of IISP 49800, or would like more information, please contact Associate Dean Stacia Zabusky (szabusky@ithaca.edu).
