HE 841 - Public Health Capstone


A culminating experience is required by the Council on Education for Public Health, the accrediting body of U.S. schools/programs of public health, for all students completing an MPH degree. The culminating experience “requires a student to synthesize and integrate the knowledge acquired in coursework and other learning experiences and to apply theory and principles in a situation that approximates some aspect of professional practice.” Accordingly, this course provides an opportunity for students to complete a distinct work product (e.g., poster for a professional meeting and/or a written paper) based on the field practice experience, synthesizing knowledge gained and competencies mastered from MPH core and concentration courses. Students are also required to develop an electronic portfolio demonstrating knowledge and skills that they have gained during their global health training.
