MEd Capstone Projects
The culminating experience in the Professional Institute for Educators (PIE) MEd programs is the formal capstone project. Each year, students in the Educational Program Design (MEd) and Educational Technology (MEd) programs complete a project that represents a unique reflection of their individual course of study. This capstone project ties together the sum of the MEd coursework taken in the program, and offers educators the choice of completing one of three projects according to educator interest and utility within the educator’s classroom, school or district. Options include a curriculum project, a research project or an action research project.
Jazz Studies (MM) Performances
Watch and listen to students, faculty, alumni and guest artists from the Jazz Studies (MM) program. From original music videos to graduate ensemble events, masterclasses and studio recorded albums, you’ll hear the unique artistic voice of the UArts community.
