Capstone Experience
The required culminating experience or Capstone is a guided research or service project, which satisfies MSOH requirements for an Integrative Learning Experience. The Capstone course is a required one semester credit bearing course, and is a core element of the MSOH Program. The capstone course is overseen by Capstone Co-Course Directors. Capstone students are responsible for designing and completing an oral health related project and presenting a deliverable in the form of a thesis. Each student must identify a faculty mentor, (referred to as the Capstone faculty mentor) who will oversee the design and development of the deliverable. Each student is required to conduct a comprehensive review of the relevant literature. The nature and scope of the project is determined jointly by the student, Capstone faculty mentor, and their Capstone course instructor. Each student should design a project that addresses their academic interests. Students must demonstrate achievement of at least three competencies including literature review & synthesis, patient-based surveys & analysis, quantitative/qualitative analysis and others.
Students must complete 125 hours of “fieldwork “conducting the agreed upon tasks associated with their approved project. Possibilities include working full time for approximately 3 ½ weeks or part time (e.g. working 3 hours/week for 22weeks). Projects can include but are not limited to; Nutritional assessment of pediatric patients, clinical research, and survey based assessment of technology in dental education.

The degree and major requirements displayed are intended as a guide for students entering in the Fall of 2021 and later. Students should consult with their academic program regarding final certifications and requirements for graduation.
