In keeping with the case-based curriculum of Brown University’s online Master of Public Health program, your culminating MPH experience is an applied project that integrates everything you’ve learned into a comprehensive paper outlining your recommendations for solving a current public health problem in your community.
Integrated Learning Experience
Complete an analysis and make recommendations to address a real-world public health issue in your Integrated Learning Experience project for the online Master of Public Health program.
Completed as part of the Integrated Learning Experience course, the project asks you to draw on everything you’ve learned throughout your Master of Public Health program to solve a public health challenge with respect to where you live.
You will choose from several Integrated Learning Experience challenges, which could involve anything from issues of intervention development or policy change to pandemic preparedness.
Working with Brown University’s world-renowned MPH faculty, you will examine your chosen public health challenge in your community, gathering and highlighting data on your locale, identifying stakeholders and developing recommendations on how you might advise your local health authority to address this challenge.
If you share an interest with any of your peers, you can work together and share your region-specific lessons. This collaborative approach to the Integrated Learning Experience gives you cross-national perspectives and insights into an array of interventions.
The result: Your final paper not only allows you to contribute to the body of scholarly knowledge of a current public health issue. It also gives you the opportunity to generate important new public health knowledge for your community.
