PHPB 7992 - Integrative Learning Experience

3 to 6 Credit Hours
Prerequisites: Instructor Approval.
The main purpose of this Public Health Integrative Learning Experience (ILEcourse is to provide a culminating, integrative learning experience for Master of Public Health program students during their final semester(sprior to graduation. As such, the course draws on students’ prior training in the MPH Foundational Public Health Knowledge and Foundational Competencies from the MPH core coursework, the Concentration Competencies from the additional required concentration course work in one of the MPH concentrations at GSU; and public health practice experience gained in the field through the practicum and other field-based coursework. The ILE is designed to challenge students to reflect and integrate their training and experience with the goal of demonstrating synthesis of foundation and concentration public health competencies as they prepare to enter the public health workforce. The ILE results in a high-quality written product which is ideally developed and delivered in a manner that is useful to external stakeholders, such as non-profit or governmental organizations. At least one faculty member reviews and assess each student’s performance in the ILE and ensures that the experience addresses the foundational and concentration-specific competencies. Faculty assessment may be supplemented with assessments from other qualified individuals (eg. preceptors).
