The Culminating Project is your final MPH requirement and takes place during your last semester. You will address a public health topic of interest by integrating knowledge and skills from courses and field training, into either a comprehensive paper or a set of written materials depending on your concentration. Through your Project, you will demonstrate foundational and concentration-specific competencies. At the end of the semester, you will present your Project.

Resources Portal

Learn more about the Culminating Project in the MPH Student Resources portal in UB Learns (for current students), and from your MPH program director, faculty advisor or 630 Culminating Project course instructor.

Publish Your Work

Publish your MPH field training experience or Culminating Project through the Journal of Public Health Student Capstones (JPHSC).

The JPHSC is a quarterly journal seeking abstracts from MPH students highlighting experiential learning activities. It provides an opportunity to share your achievements with professionals, educators and your peers in public health.

Qualifying submissions can be data analyses, research proposals, program evaluations, historical or literature reviews on public health topics, or original research.

Learn more about the JPHSC abstract guidelines, and talk with faculty about submitting field training or culminating project work through this scholarly journal.
