    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This was a simple yet interesting course that gave a great introduction to the range of careers that a health promotion and disease prevention degree can lead to. Classes ranged from lectures to highly esteemed guest speakers to documentaries on relevant health topics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were definitely the guest lecturers that came. We had professors present their research from fields of environmental health, tobacco, genetics, epidemiology, and much more. Other notable speakers included someone from the AIDS Foundation who came to share about his experience working with the condom regulations in the adult film industry. It came at a relevant time as there was a proposition to vote on in the recent election on this topic. I also really enjoyed the documentaries we watched, No Mas Bebes which was on the forced sterilization that occurred on minority populations at County Hospital in LA, and Food Evolution, which shed truth on the highly debated topic of GMOs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely do the extra credit paper. It's daunting because it's 15-20 pages but choose a topic you are genuinely interested in, and turn in what you can. Don't overthink questions, exams and questions can be tricky if you think about questions for too long. The professor doesn't try to trick you.
