PSYC 6777 - Essentials of Public Health: A Case Study Approach♦


(5 cr.) Natural and human-caused disasters continue to affect society, facilitating the need for professionals who possess an overarching understanding of the foundational concepts of public health as well as knowledge of awareness and preparedness. Students in this course evaluate key aspects of public health, including its history, mission, essential services, core functions, infrastructure, resources, workforce, achievements, challenges, and career options. They explore these facets through case studies, hypothetical scenarios, and journal articles. Although the main focus of this course is on the public health system in the United States, students also address global issues and views of public health on a global level.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
