I'm assuming we're talking about the Liberal Arts Capstone.

Yes, it's essentially a 25 page thesis paper on a topic of your choice, approved by the professor. The first week you'll turn in research questions for three different topics of your choice, and the Prof will give you feedback on them. After that, you'll have drafts of parts of the paper due every two weeks, and the last 2-3 weeks will be spent combining parts and finishing the paper. Make sure you take all the instructor's comments into account as you revise and polish. If you take the online course, you'll also have blog posts due each week. I considered them free points. They added up to nearly a full letter grade and I didn't spend more than 20 minutes on them, for which I got 100%. The upshot was that I could have gotten a very low B on the final paper and still got an A in the course.

If you just hate the idea of doing blog posts, you can take the guided study version.
