PH 497 - Public Health Capstone (2 Cr.)

(Formerly PH 350)
This course will provide a bridge to graduate study in Public Health. The course will be team-taught by faculty from Biology, Psychology, Sociology, and Peace Studies, focusing on approaches to research in Public Health, data analysis, literature review and grant writing. Our approach reflects the multidisciplinary nature of Public Health, and it will help you to identify and understand the role of the skills, methodologies and theoretical paradigms you bring to the table from your majors as you develop new abilities. Prerequisites: Open to juniors and seniors participating in the Public Health (PH) minor and having completed a statistics or methods course in the natural or social sciences (MA 268 PSY 250 EC 206 , PCE 210 , SOA 217 ), preferably with some introduction to SPSS. In addition, students should have completed a minimum of one course in each of the two additional categories defining the PH minor (Natural Science; Social Sciences and Peace Studies). This course may be open to other students by permission of the instructor. Spring semester. Bess, Shope, Friedman-Wheeler.
