    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed the way Professor Billowitz regularly brought in guest speakers from the Public Health field, because this helped me understand the career opportunities in the profession. This was obviously my first Public Health class, and it confirmed that I had chosen the right major.

    Course highlights:

    The course went a long way toward explaining the career opportunities in the field of Public Health, and I liked the way this was a main topic of the many of the guest speakers’ presentations. It also taught a lot about how socio-economic status impacts peoples' health and longevity. One of the main themes I took away from the course is that public health is everywhere – where we live, how much education we obtain, seatbelt, bicycle and motorcycle helmet use, the quality of our water and air, etc. Public health is a very broad field that I had difficulty defining before I took this class, but now, I know that if I had to sum the field up in one word, it would be “prevention.”

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the assigned work! Never miss a class, do all of the reading, and establish a relationship with the professor, who recommended that everybody drop by her office hours at least once to introduce themselves. This definitely paid off for me, as Professor Billowitz ended up writing me a nice recommendation for me for my recent European Study Abroad program.
