RVCC Honors College Students Present Independent Study Projects

Eighteen students in Raritan Valley Community College’s Honors College presented their independent “Capstone Course” projects as part of a daylong symposium, held April 29 at the College’s Branchburg Campus. Topics ran the gamut of subjects—from “Solar Energy,” to “Childhood Obesity,” to “Why Female Protagonists Self Destruct,” to “Philosophical Meaning in Music,” to “Anglo-Afghan Wars and Afghanistan.” The Capstone Course is designed to guide sophomore Honors College students from all disciplines through the stages of researching and writing a major research paper or project, or developing an artistic pursuit.


The students are supervised by faculty members and present their work at the end of the semester.
