JMC students in the final semester of their senior year with a minimum 3.25 GPA extend foundational skills and create a project that is approved by a committee before course registration. Projects may include a design or photography portfolio, a documentary, a social media campaign, or a series of magazine articles. The selection process is competitive with a proposal submitted in the semester before the intended capstone semester, a pitch at the start of the capstone semester, and a decision by the faculty capstone committee. The selected students work under the supervision of a JMC faculty member. The final project is presented and reviewed by a faculty capstone committee and may count as the Bulgarian State Exam.
