HUMN 8115 - Social, Behavioral, and Cultural Factors in Public Health


(4 cr.) In this course, students identify and analyze the major social, behavioral, and cultural variables and issues that affect the health of populations, including community, gender, age, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, environment, and behavioral risks. Students also explore research, theoretical, and conceptual frameworks from the social and behavioral sciences. They apply these frameworks and other theories presented in the course to intervention strategies or program initiatives that address current public health problems and reduce health disparities. Through a final paper and critique, students demonstrate their understanding of content presented in the course, share ideas and perspectives, and provide feedback to peers.
