The India: Public Health, Gender, and Community Action program studies the relationship between public health and the community in a field-study context. Students analyze specific case studies that illuminate the problems, prospects, and potential methods of promoting health, healthcare access, and equity. Policy advocacy efforts for the right to health on the national and international levels are also examined, along with relevant best health practices including the international health bill of rights.
The program includes five credit-bearing courses:
- Two thematic seminars that incorporate educational excursions and a one-week public health NGO workshop in India or Thailand
- Hindi intensive language course: beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels
- Field Methods and Ethics
- Independent Study Project
The program facilitates experiential learning and the values of active global citizenship for all students.
The following syllabi are representative of this program. Because courses develop and change over time to take advantage of dynamic learning opportunities, actual course content will vary from term to term.
