AGNR 488 - Honors Capstone

3 Credit Hours
This course will build upon concepts introduced in AGNR 480, “How to Feed the World” or  FWF 420 “International Natural Resource Issues” and is the second semester of the two-semester capstone experience for the Honors Food, Agricultural, Natural Resource, and Human Sciences (FANHS) Minor. Students will produce a project that is built from the knowledge gained in AGNR 480 and done in conjunction with a faculty mentor engaged in FANHS research, leadership, international, or Extension programs. Examples of projects include (but are not limited to): a new computer program; the design of a new piece of equipment or technology; devising, implementing, and evaluating a new FANHS-based practice; landscape design; devising a business plan; devising, implementing, and evaluating new FANHS-based education or outreach materials. For successful completion of the course, the student will also produce a written component and a public presentation of the project at a University of Tennessee or professional society venue. The written document is generally shorter than the thesis and will include most if not all of the following: rationale, statement of originality, summary of the process of project completion, challenges, and reflection.
