All Master of Public Health degree students are required to complete a field-based project (HLTH 786 MPH Project, 3 credits).

You must work with your advisor EARLY during the final year (or earlier) of the program to select a topic, and anticipate choosing other faculty members to be part of your committee. Your project proposal is due by April 1st for December graduation and by November 1st for May graduation.

If students are using any University resource, they must be registered for at least one credit. Thus, for example, if the student has been given an "I" for the project, and plans to complete the project and graduate the following semester, that will require being registered for at least one credit of independent study (HLTH 688) in the graduating semester.

For students who entered the MPH program in Fall 2018 and later, please use the following MPH Capstone Guidelines.
