The capstone course is a problem based, project-oriented course for senior Public Health Science majors. This class will require self-initiated, collaborative, interdisciplinary, and integrative student work that represents your accumulated public health education in practice. Students will work collaboratively in teams on a current public health problem facing the local community. Students will characterize the problem, conduct fieldwork, analyze possible solutions, and present the results to local community stakeholders, including fellow public health classmates and faculty. Students will examine complex issues from diverse perspectives and employ a variety of analytical tools to create solution-oriented, evidence-based, and applied deliverables.
