HCOM 598 - Community-Based Health Interventions Capstone Research

Prerequisites, HCOM 570 , HCOM 580 , HCOM 582 , HCOM 595 , admittance to the Master of Science in Health and Strategic Communication Program. This capstone course serves as a final research seminar for graduate students nearing the completion of their degrees. Prior to enrolling in this course, students have gained a strong foundation in theories of interpersonal and health communication and have been challenged to think about the opportunities they might pursue in the application of this theoretical knowledge. In addition, students have been challenged to investigate their particular interests through their work in elective courses, both within and outside the department. In this capstone course, students will take the final step: the completion of an independent research project that makes a significant contribution to the field of health communication. (Offered every semester.) 3 credits
