A Celebration of Arts & Humanities
During the fourth year, all NYUAD students produce a capstone project – either as an individual or team – in their major field. The Capstone Project is a demanding, year-long endeavor aiming at a significant piece of research or creative work– an historical narrative, musical composition, performance, invention, documented experiment, scholarly thesis, or other form appropriate to the student’s goals. Unlike other courses in which faculty establish the structure and set assignments, students work independently with guidance from NYUAD faculty. The fundamental challenge is to extend oneself in making knowledge, reframing conventional approaches to an issue, or creating something new.
Featuring works by students Brooks Fowler, Sanyu Kiyimba-Kisaka Kristina Kleymenova & Cristobal Martinez.
Featuring work by students Hasan Nabulsi, Valentina Vela , Krisztián Nagy, Darya Soroko & Joi Lee
