Capstone/Research Requirement

The six-credit research experience is completed over two consecutive terms.

The first part of your action research course is used for planning and proposal development. Assignments from the research course will be used in finalizing your action research project and proposal.

In the second part of your research course, students work in the field. With the guidance of the research mentor and support of the course instructor, students gain practical experience to complement the skills, knowledge and principles they have learned in their coursework. A current place of employment may be used to fulfill this requirement, but the student must go above and beyond his or her current job function. Drexel’s partnership with schools throughout the School District of Philadelphia also provides many opportunities for field internships, placements, and professional development.

Upon completion of the research courses, students will have a solid foundation of knowledge, research skills and experience to add to their credentials.
