If you are not doing a senior honors thesis, you must participate in the 413 selection process. This page announces 413 sections available in fall and winter of the next academic year. There will be no spring term capstones. A 413 course usually does not count towards distribution, but if you are in a pinch, you may petition the chair for an exception, depending on your paper topic. Creative capstone courses don't count towards distribution, but they do fulfill the capstone requirement.
