The Capstone course represents the ultimate application and integration of Performing Arts majors' knowledge, skills, and experience. Students conceive, research, and realize hands on projects that represent a final preparation for applying their expertise in dance, music, or theatre in real-world settings after graduation.

Recent Capstone project have included collaboration with CI Community Partners with the support of the Center for Community Engagement.

Theatre students have designed and performed projects in local middle schools for Straight Up / Reality Improv and co-wrote, staged and performed in an original Teatro Campesino-style acto (short play) performed as the culmination of the Farmworker Immersion Program.

Music students have arranged and performed sets at AlmaVia of Camarillo, arranged and conducted for New West Symphony Orchestra's outreach program The Harmony Project, and taught African drumming at the Annex after school program in Oxnard.

Dance students choreographed and taught classes at the Camarillo Boys and Girl's Club, and designed and led movement therapy-based stress-reduction workshops at CI's Relay for Life.

All Capstone projects develop out of interdisciplinary research by the project leads and involve collaboration among Capstone students of all emphases.
