Welcome to Bronx Beautiful!


Dear Capstone Students,

Welcome to CAP 200 Bronx Beautiful! I think you will find the topics in this class to be really interesting and even native Bronxites who known A LOT about the Bronx might learn something; similarly, students who are new to the Bronx or don’t live in the Bronx will also find out some pretty cool information about the borough in which they go to school. Please consider yourselves co-collaborators in this course. 

Use the page links above to navigate through the course. This is an Open Educational Resource (OER) course, so everything you need is available through this course shell. 

The capstone project can take the form of a service learning project OR a research paper. You will propose your own project; the key is that you choose something that means something to you, your family and community, and/or your future career. 

Please feel free to email me with any questions or write to say hello!
