1 Claremont Graduate University Master of Public Health Program CGH 307: Public Health Capstone Academic Year The Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH), an independent agency recognized by the US Department of Education that accredits schools and programs in public health, requires all of its accredited schools to assure that each student demonstrates skills and integration of knowledge through a culminating experience. As defined by CEPH, a culminating experience requires a student to synthesize and integrate knowledge acquired in coursework and other learning experiences and to apply theory and principles in a situation that approximates some aspect of professional practice. Through the culminating experience the faculty determines whether the student has mastered the body of knowledge required of a master s degree graduate. Course Facilitator Darleen Peterson, PhD, MPH, MCHES Associate Professor, MPH Program Director & Faculty Advisor Phone: or cell: Fax: E- mail: Course Description The main purpose of the Capstone is to provide the culminating, integrative curricular experience for students enrolled in Claremont Graduate University s Master of Public Health program during their last semester prior to graduation. As such, the course draws on students prior training in the five core areas of public health (i.e., Social and Behavioral Science, Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Health Services and Environmental and Occupational Health), their additional required course work in Health Promotion, Education & Evaluation, Applied Biostatistics and Epidemiology, and Leadership and Management and their real world experience gained in the field prior to their graduation. More than just providing a review of the MPH curriculum, however, the Capstone is designed to challenge students to reflect and integrate their training and experience with the goal of developing their own individual point of view regarding the role of public health in contributing to the improvement of the health and well being of populations in the United States, as well as abroad. Course Objectives Because the Capstone course pulls together the training students have received in all their prior coursework and field experience, it provides the opportunity to round out the development of the full set of competencies viewed as essential for masters- prepared graduates in public health. As such, this course is structured to accomplish four objectives: 1

2 1. Provide students with a means of self- assessment, indicating how core and concentration- specific competencies were achieved, through master s courses and fieldwork, community service, and paid work experience 2. Demonstrate to the graduate faculty that students have attained a basic knowledge base and skill set within the core public health areas 3. Provide information that will be used by the Council on Education in Public Health to assess the curriculum s effectiveness in providing students with the opportunities necessary to become competent in the core public health areas and in specialized areas 4. Offer a means whereby students can market themselves to potential employers, showcasing their professional development, accomplishments and abilities. Course Requirements The MPH Portfolio In order to complete the culminating experience, students submit a portfolio that becomes the property of the program. The portfolio is a compendium of documents that demonstrate accomplishments during the MPH degree program in the School of Community and Global Health. It contains a collection of work that exhibits students efforts, progress, achievements, reflections and self- assessment in one or more areas. The portfolio tracks and collects in one location many of the materials produced during the master s coursework. Thus, the portfolio ties together courses, fieldwork, service, leadership and paid work experience with specific core competencies of the MPH program. Portfolio development is a process that allows students to collect, select, reflect, build on and showcase their work and experiences through the entire degree program. The portfolio requirement allows students to review the general public health competencies and the competencies in their specific field of concentration. Students will reflect on how they attained these competencies through a combination of coursework, fieldwork, employment, community service, and other experiences. Students will also evaluate their fieldwork experiences, and identify general and specialization competencies that were enhanced during this experience. The materials in this section will help develop and maintain the portfolio that is submitted during the capstone course. The portfolio consists of academic, professional and service accomplishments and may include major course projects, reports, presentations, publications and other samples of work that is completed. The portfolio provides concrete evidence of your learning in graduate school and provides you with writing samples and other examples of your skills to share with potential employers. Requirement 2: Capstone Paper Each student will develop a scholarly paper based upon those projects undertaken as part of the supervised field training experience. The final paper provides another opportunity for the student to identify the manner in which core and concentration specific competencies were mastered. Grading The portfolio and paper are weighted equally. Students will be given a grade of Satisfactory (S) or Unsatisfactory (U). Quality of work must reflect a B or better (80% out of 100%) to receive a 2

3 satisfactory mark. Both the portfolio and final paper are graded by a faculty committee comprised of the Program Director the student s concentration Director using a standardized rubric. Faculty have developed procedures for remediating less than satisfactory performance on the capstone experience. Students will receive an individual assignment crafted by their concentration director and the MPH program director. Questions will be devised based upon those competencies that were not met. Students will be given a written exam, which will be graded by both faculty members. Any unsatisfactory responses will be addressed in an oral examination. Students have one opportunity to pass the individual assignment. Due Dates The final paper and all portfolio contents must be submitted to the instructor in at the Claremont Administrative offices by 5:00 p.m. according to the following schedule: Semester Spring 2014 Summer 2014 Fall Due Dates May 5 August 18 December 15 Students failing to meet these deadlines in the semester in which they register for CGH 307 will receive a grade of Incomplete (IN) for the semester. The IN will be removed once all deliverables have been received. Students have one calendar year from registration in CGH 307 to complete the course requirements. 3

Depending upon the nature of the materials you include, one binder will contain the portfolio sections, and the other can be an appendix to include your sample work.

6 Competencies in Public Health a. Core competencies (20%) The core competencies describe what a fully- prepared graduate of our program should be able to do. The core competencies have been selected by the faculty. They are covered in the core courses, and are linked to specific learning objectives in each core course. As the MPH core competencies are interdisciplinary, many of them are covered in the concentration courses, as well. This section of the portfolio provides documentation and evidence of competence in the 10 core competencies required to graduate from our program. Note: If you have substituted any courses within the MPH curriculum with courses in other programs, concentrations or directed research units, please include a copy of the syllabi. Please include copies of your assignment indicating which part(s) addressed the competency in the appendix.
