Capstone Project

This is the culminating capstone course for all masters-level graduate students in the Department of Population Health Sciences. It has two aims: (1) help students discover and develop new and effective ways of working with stakeholders within the healthcare field and (2) help accelerate students’ development of context awareness, integrative management, and industry skills that are needed to be successful in a rapidly changing healthcare sector. The culminating capstone course provides a deeper foundation for the next stages of a student's career.  

The culminating capstone project consists of the following courses, which are taken in sequence: 

  • Masters Project I (1 credit) 
  • Masters Project II (2 credits) 
  • Masters Project III (3 credits) 

Capstone Phases (HI/HPE)

The capstone for HI and HPE students is a one-year long project that has three phases: the first phase (Masters Project I) involves a professional development course and matching students in a capstone project, the second phase (Masters Project II) has students working with their client and under the guidance of a faculty advisor, and the third phase (Masters Project III) consists of completing an abstract, final poster, final paper, and final poster presentation in front of faculty, staff, and students.
