This introductory course introduces students to the principles of epidemiology, which are the cornerstones of public health science. Epidemiology is the study of disease and health patterns in populations and places and the application of this study to prevent and control epidemics and reduce disease burdens and disparities. Using seminar lectures combined with collaborative exercises, films and guest speakers, students will be engaged on a range of topics including: disease determinants, measures and interpretation of disease frequency and association, epidemiological study designs and risk assessment, web-based tools, participatory and spatial epidemiology, surveillance and monitoring, and epidemiology for social justice. There are no prerequisites. This course satisfies the Foundation requirement for the Interdisciplinary Science major and the "subject by subject" course requirement for Journalism + Design Major.
