This Final Project course is only available to learners who have earned a Verified Certificate in each course of the Challenges in Global Affairs Specialization (The Changing Global Order, Configuring the World, and International Organizations Management). You won't be able to enroll in this course if you do not have a Verified Certificate in each of those three courses.
In this capstone project we would like you to apply your academic skills, go out in the field and do research. You will apply knowledge and skills acquired in the various MOOCs to make your own creative contributions to ongoing challenges in international relations in practice. Each student will choose a topic and write an article-length essay. This written argument engages with other evidence in the form of visual and/or written texts. Students will also learn by giving and receiving feedback on each others' essays.
