Integrative Learning Experience – IPHS 698

For MPH students matriculating Fall 2018 and thereafter

Effective Fall 2018, all MPH students are required to complete an Integrative Learning Experience (ILE) at or near the end of their second year of study. The ILE represents a culminating experience and may take many forms, such as a policy brief, evaluation/research report, community health assessment, program evaluation, strategic plan, intervention plan or other formats. Regardless of form, students produce a high-quality written product that is relevant to the student’s educational and professional goals and that demonstrates synthesis of foundational and concentration competencies. Ideally, the written product is developed and delivered in a manner that is useful to external stakeholders, such as non-profit or governmental organizations.

For more information, please consult the ILE Handbook and your ILE Advisor.


Students matriculating prior to Fall 2018 will have the option to complete the new ILE or follow the capstone requirements. Please consult your academic advisor and reference the archived 2017-2018 MPH Student Handbook for more information on the Capstone requirements and guidelines
