Course Code: BHSW 3500
Academic Year: 2020-2021
This in-class and online hybrid course introduces the student to the field of epidemiology. It begins with an exploration of fundamental concepts including disease study and measurement, interpreting biostatistics, and causation. Building upon this foundation, the students examine selected communicable and chronic diseases as they relate to workplace health and wellness. Students are invited to participate in in-class group discussions and online learning. A group project ties together the major elements of the course and allows for a creative and non-traditional assessment of knowledge.
