An exploration of the challenges to health—including a scientific understanding of causes of, and possible approaches to control, major environmental health problems—is also included. You will learn procedures for program administration and interpreting public health programs for individuals and groups from a diverse perspective.
In the Capstone course, you will choose an area of interest in public health, define and study the problem, collect and analyze the data, indicate your findings and discuss implications and potential solutions for future practice or research.
