This course will focus on introducing fundamentals of methods used in modern public health research and practice. Through a variety of approaches to formal and experiential learning, you will develop your skills and knowledge in several core concept areas of public health methods: quantitative health data analysis, health surveys, policy analysis, environmental health risk assessment, qualitative data analysis, and health communications. One class per week (on average) will be a "workshop class", in which you and your classmates will break out into groups to evaluate current topics and issues in public health using different methodological approaches.
Satisfies an interdisciplinary minor requirement in Health and Human Values.
