The research capstone is a problem based, project-oriented course for senior Public Health Science majors. Under the direct supervision of a faculty member, 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.
