Guided Capstone Preparation Seminar
Credits: 1
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Prerequisite: Must have attended a capstone project orientation session; and must have completed or be concurrently enrolled in HLTH625, HLTH665, and HLTH710.
The purpose of this seminar is to guide students through the major steps and deadlines associated with developing their capstone project, which is the MPH degree culminating experience. The capstone project requires that students apply the knowledge and skills acquired during their MPH program to meet the needs of a stakeholder group or person. Some examples of needs (deliverables) include: an infographic, a website, a curriculum, a lesson plan, an app, an evaluation plan, a policy brief, etc. Some examples of stakeholders: include legislators, non-profit organizations, a faculty researcher, a government (county, state or federal) agency, etc. The project is very applied in nature and the result is a deliverable that can be used immediately by the stakeholder.
