Capstone: Research in Human Rights


A primary learning objective is to have students connect the intellectual themes and scholarly knowledge they have developed in the Gateway, Introduction to Human Rights, and the electives they have taken toward the Human Rights Certificate. The course integrates co-curricular rights-related experiences (through DukeEngage, DukeImmerse, internships and volunteer placements). The capstone culminates in a final project. Students may work in teams toward a final project so long as each student's work is evaluated separately and at a high standard. Prerequisite: Cultural Anthropology 104D. Consent of director of undergraduate studies required.
