As a requirement to graduate from Faculty of Education, senior students have to submit Capstone projects. This project provides students with various learning experiences – obtained through the School Experience Program, the Community Service Program (CSP – KKN in Indonesian)- and the opportunity to integrate the knowledge and skills they have acquired through the coursework. There are three alternative ways by which students can accomplish the project: (1) produce a full thesis report based on an empirical research study;
(2) write a scholarly paper and;
(3) produce a teaching and learning materials (audio visual, video, teaching aids, etc.).
