INDL 101C           STEM in the First Year Experience

Introduces new college students to a STEM field through integration with the social sciences and humanities while developing the “habits of mind” and academic skills critical to first-year college success. Through examination of a special topic, students will be challenged to reflect on the behaviors that both improve and impede their learning of specific subject matter and their overall academic progress. (Enrollment limited to first-time college students and transfer students with fewer than 12 credits by permission of authorized academic advisors. Interested students should contact the Advising Center.)

INDL 120C           Global Public Health Issues

Provides an introduction to and overview of the key areas of global health by addressing the major determinants of health and how health status is measured to determine the burden of disease in the developing world. Using the perspectives of public health, the course will cover factors associated with the development of health problems and efforts to prevent disease in impoverished areas. Students will explore the role of social communication, politics, religion, economics, education, and culture in contributing to global public health issues and will integrate these factors and values in developing solutions to the widespread public health issues impacting communities worldwide. Students will learn about the magnitude of disease in the developing world (e.g., communicable and non-communicable disease, women and child health, nutrition, and unintentional injuries) and how health is assessed and how health systems effectively work together to improve global health. (This course may be used to meet either an SOCI elective or a Humanities elective but not both.)
