The culminating experience of the MSPH program is the production of an MSPH capstone that provides a meaningful contribution to knowledge of the health of underserved populations. The capstone is not a thesis in that it need not contain original research findings for review by an academic committee. However, it should provide tangible evidence of expertise on a specific applied topic of international health relevance. The capstone must be reviewed and approved by two faculty readers.
