The mission of the generalist concentration is to allow advanced degree students to achieve specialized public health competencies optimally aligned with their professional aspirations, by providing them the opportunity to design and complete an individualized curriculum that best meets their educational needs. Advanced degree students are those who have already completed or are concurrently completing the graduate degree required for advanced practice in their current health profession. Students in this track have varying flexibility to complete combinations of relevant concentration courses and electives. The mission is considered met when the student successfully undertakes a practicum project that satisfies their tailored concentration requirements, as determined with guidance from program faculty.
