Culminating Experience

The Culminating Experience (CE) is a capstone-style extensive research or practice-related project in the area of public health completed during students' final year of study. The CE process provides the structure that allows the student to take responsibility for and to succeed in the development, conduct, and completion of the project. While some students complete their research with Northwestern, others seek opportunities to partner with a community group or government agency for their project.
