PUBH 9000 - Public Health Dissertation
(6 cr. per term for minimum of five terms until completion) Doctoral students are offered the opportunity to integrate their program of study into an in-depth exploration within an interest area through the completion of a research study in this course. Students complete the dissertation independently, with the guidance of a dissertation supervisory committee chair and committee members. They must also participate in an accompanying online course and complete a prospectus, proposal, Institutional Review Board application, and final dissertation paper and presentation. Once students register for PUBH 9000, they are registered each term until successful completion of the dissertation.
Students take this course for a minimum of five terms and are continuously enrolled until completion of their Dissertation with final Chief Academic Officer (CAO) approval.
To complete a dissertation, students must obtain the academic approval of several independent evaluators including their committee, the University Research Reviewer, and the Institutional Review Board; pass the Form and Style Review; gain approval at the oral defense stage; and gain final approval by the Chief Academic Officer. Students must also publish their dissertation on ProQuest before their degree is conferred. Learn more about the dissertation process in the Dissertation Guidebook. (Prerequisite(s): Foundational and core curricula; appointment of an approved dissertation committee chair.)
