Public Health General Education Concentration (GEC)

The Public Health general education concentration explores public and community health from interdisciplinary perspectives, looking at such issues as medical practice; public policy concerning health care; sociology of race, class, and gender; and cultural constructions of health and sickness. It aims to expose students to public health issues at global, national, and local levels. Students have the option of completing a significant co-curricular community-engaged project in lieu of one of the four GEC courses.

Information about the co-curricular option may be found here.
