GHS 510 - Global Health Fieldwork

A study of global health field practices in preparation for domestic and international internships, practicums, or cultural immersion opportunities. Students investigate cultural competencies required across a variety of work sectors that serve global health; become familiar with key political, religious, and cultural practices in their respective settings; and explore existing data and narratives about the lives of diverse populations in their regional focus area. Ethical engagement practices, especially in lower- and middle-income countries and regions of the US, are emphasized. Within their specific research area, students identify and evaluate data sources and evidence-based practices, and reflect on their understanding and experience prior to arriving on-site. This may be taught as a seven-week course. Prerequisites: None Distribution Requirements: None
