PH 645: THE MPH CAPSTONE PROJECT
The Capstone Project Handbook provides definitive guidance for the completion of
the MPH Capstone Project. The timelines, policies, and prerequisites for completion
of the project as well as the roles, responsibilities, and expectations of students
and faculty are outlined in this handbook."
Students conducting a Capstone project produce a substantial, original, independently
written manuscript concerning a significant public health problem and share and defend
their work during an oral presentation.
The Capstone project is a significant undertaking that gives students the opportunity
to develop their analytical skills and to gain expertise in a subject area.
The Capstone process usually takes three-four semesters and consists of three phases:
- Planning and project development (usually occurring in the first and second semesters of the program),
- Conducting the project (usually occurring in the second or third semester of the program),
- Analyzing and summarizing project results (the fourth, or last, semester of the program).
Joint and dual degree students may have different timelines.
