Community-engaged scholarship: It’s what we do. It’s who we are. The master’s capstone is a year-long service-learning course that gives our students an opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills gained in the first year of the program by working in teams partnered with community-based organizations to address real-world public health problems.

The Capstone Team Learning Experience

  • Improves or develops public health programs, services, and resources
  • Builds students’ and organizations’ capacity to address public health problems
  • Strengthens partnerships between the university and community groups
  • Positions students to be competitive in the job market

We focus equally on the service and the learning aspects of the experience. Class sessions are an opportunity for students to prepare for, reflect on, share, and receive feedback about their capstone experiences.
