The official guide to courses from the Big Three: COSC, TESU, & Excelsior
yes, I took it the first time for my History BA and this time for Communications. It's changed a good bit in the interim, for instance there was no oral presentation when I did it the first time and now instead of a literature review they want an annotated bibliography. So it's not really the same class anymore.

You have to take 30 new credits in your area of study for the new degree so from my POV you might as well take the capstone again but from what I understood from talking to the advisors it's required to be repeated in any case. I'm not sure you can turn in 30 new credits in just one term anyway, it took me longer than that but your mileage may vary on that as well.

It's only 13 assignments over 12 weeks though so it's really not that big a deal, and like I said the Oral Presentation is largely covered by Written Assignment 5 and the Final Paper is largely covered by Written Assignments 1-4. So really it's more like 11 assignments. I think my Oral Presentation took me less than an hour to do in total and it was 20 min long so not like it was a ton of work. Your mileage may vary but as long as you can write reasonably fast and you are familiar with presentation software it's only about as much work as a LL course really. Intro to Communications II, which is LL, also had 13 assignments over 12 weeks and other than not having an oral presentation was about the same amount of work as this course was.

TBH the first time I took this Capstone it was about 3x as much work but that could have been on me for formulating a thesis that was too broad. - 165 CR. TESU - 39 CR. Middle Georgia State University - 15 CR. Sonoran Desert Institute - 42 CR. COSC - 6 CR. Excelsior - 6 CR. CLEP - 6 CR. Sophia - 14 CR. TEEX - 2 CR. Shmoop - 18 CR. NFA - 4 CR. The Institutes - 2 CR. FEMA - 20ish

BA in History/English from TESU. 
BA in Communications from TESU. AS in Firearms Technology from SDI.

Quote:Students who have earned a baccalaureate degree from TESU or an accredited institution recognized under the Thomas Edison State University Transfer Credit Policy and wish to earn an additional baccalaureate degree must:
  • Complete a minimum of 24 credits including the required capstone for the degree. These credits must be in the area of study and/or core of the degree. These credits must be earned after the date the most recent degree, regardless of academic level, was conferred.
  • Additionally, students must complete all other degree requirements as listed in the current Thomas Edison State University Catalog.

It looks like "including the required capstone for the degree" was made explicit starting with the 2020-2021 catalog.
