PUBH 9100 - Public Health Capstone

(5 cr. per term for a minimum of 3 quarters until completion)
The purpose of this forum is to assist students in making steady progress toward earning a doctoral degree. Doctoral students are offered the opportunity to synthesize knowledge of their program of study and complete an in-depth exploration of a practice, issue, or problem within their discipline. Students will engage in regular scholarly discussions with a faculty chair and fellow doctoral students and submit Quarterly Plans and products toward completion of the doctoral degree. Information and resources related to the doctoral study, residencies, research, writing, and doctoral program expectations are provided for guidance. 

Students take this course for a minimum of three quarters and are continuously enrolled until completion of their doctoral study with final chief academic officer (CAO) approval.

To complete a doctoral study, 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 doctoral study on ProQuest before their degree is conferred. Learn more about the doctoral study process in the Doctoral Study Guidebook.
