All participants must complete a culminating capstone project, which will be a service or research project integrating aspects of injury and violence prevention. In some instances, practicum or thesis research work for a primary degree could be used, although the actual capstone project must be distinct from the practicum or thesis.
Students must sign up for three independent study credits with a UW faculty mentor as part of their capstone requirement. Capstone project proposals must be approved by the certificate program manager and director.
Students are expected to design their own capstone project. There are a wide variety of options. For example, students may choose to provide technical assistance to ongoing injury and violence research projects (develop study instruments, conduct data analysis, execute field implementation); write part of a grant application; or develop a program evaluation for a service project.
Funding assistance: Students may apply for $3000 of funding assistance for their capstone projects. This funding could be used for international travel to complete capstones of global relevance. This is a competitive application process and only a few students from the Global Injury and Violence Certificate Program will be selected to receive funding.
NOTE: Capstone project proposals must be approved by the certificate staff prior to conducting field work.
