Video: Senior Capstones December 2016
Three seniors talk about their capstone projects – the crowning feature of McDaniel’s curriculum, an in-depth investigation of a topic in the student’s major or a field placement.
Across all disciplines, students top off their educations with this original work in their fields – and use this experience as a passport to both career and graduate school. Through capstones, students often begin to express themselves as professionals.
- Matthew Welte, a Mathematics major from Berlin, N.J., examines how musical objects such as notes and chords can be translated into mathematical structure so that mathematical operations can be applied; effectively changing them from one note or chord to another.
- Music major Arielle Jochum of Westminster, Md., talks about her senior capstone recital — her cello and vocal performances that combine her love for classical music and jazz as the culmination of her Music training at McDaniel.
- Theatre Arts major Najee Banks of Westminster, Md., talks about his senior capstone — his role in the musical “Hair” as the pinnacle of his theatre experience at McDaniel.
