CREEES MA Student Capstone Presentations

This is an in-person event in Encina Commons 123 open to those with a Stanford ID.

The capstone thesis is a central component of the CREEES MA program, which allows students to produce a work of original scholarship during their year in the program.  Students work closely on a topic of their choice, under the guidance of a faculty advisor and in consultation with the CREEES director and associate director. Join this event to learn about students' capstone research projects.
