Capstone Experience

Contributing to public health in our community

Starting Fall 2017, the MPH Capstone at the Anschutz campus will be presented in a two-semester sequence. Please click here to learn about the new format.

For MPH students the culminating academic experience for their program is a Masters Project (or publishable paper) that benefits that community or a particular target population. Projects must contribute meaningfully to the current body of knowledge in the field and may include creating a program plan, program evaluation, or policy initiative.

The project is often connected to the student's Practice-Based Learning by addressing a need identified by the host site. The project or paper will relate to a student's academic goals and professional interests, as well as demonstrate the student's ability to work independently at the master's level.

The final products are a professional oral and poster presentation at the CSPH Public Health Forum, and a paper addressing the student's experience. Students earn their Capstone Experience credits through their Masters Project. Assigned faculty members and site preceptors provide ongoing support and guidance to students during the project. At the end of each semester students present their work at the Public Health Forum.
