Practicum and Capstone

Practicum

Supervised fieldwork is an opportunity for MPH students to apply the knowledge and skills they are gaining through MPH coursework into practice. Students must complete 180 hours in a fieldwork placement, working on an approved project at a host organization. Supervised fieldwork counts for 3 credits conferred by CUNY SPH toward the MPH degree.

Capstone

This course consists of a structured seminar aimed at allowing students to apply experiences gained during their graduate program and synthesize that knowledge and experience in the form of a major writing project. It is expected that students use a combination of synthesized evidence, theoretical models, and empirical research to answer a public health research question or practice problem using interdisciplinary perspectives.
