A Guide to Writing Your Capstone Proposal*
Investing ample time in writing a clear proposal upfront will safe you lots of grief next
semester. Your absolute deadline for your final copy of your capstone project is a week
before the finals in the spring semester 2015.
1. What is your project all about? Write a brief overview. Is it a review of an
existing concept of body of knowledge? a comparison? an analysis? a clinical
correlation? a retrospective review?
2. Give your proposed project a clear, concise, and descriptive working title.
Note: this is a working title! Keep your working title in mind as you develop
each section of your project. Make sure the final title connects with the
elements of the project.
1. Clearly and concisely tell your readers what your project is, keeping in mind
that not all may be familiar with the terminology or jargon you use that is
unique to your field. Focus your project approach for your readers.
Background and Rationale

create, analyze, collect, survey, observe.
