    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to those going into a health profession as it shows you there are many underlining factors that may affect the status of one's health. It was overall an interesting course that can open your eyes to the many ways health can be affected. Moreover, it also shows the different approaches one in the health professions may tackle a certain health issue.

    Course highlights:

    You will gain a better understanding of how societal problems can affect health. Moreover, you will learn that status of health are not just depended on symptoms, but can be affected by living factors such as, socioeconomic status, environment and etc. Each lecture was very interesting and the professor is very open to the students input and encourages conversation in the classroom.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get ahead on the readings and make sure to take notes on them. Also get to know Professor Osbakken because she can be a great reference in the future. She also wants you to succeed as much as possible. It is also important to go to the TAs for any help as they are always willing to help you with any questions you may have. Be sure to speak up in class from time to time or at least speak to the professor about a certain topic. Talking about the topics allows you to get a better understanding. Also do not procrastinate on any of the assignments.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Offers many new and different perspectives on societal health care

    Course highlights:

    I learned to look beyond symptoms of illness in assessing a patient's heath. I learned to consider socioeconomic status, education, income level, marital status, race, gender, age (etc.) when it comes to discussing healthcare. How we, as aspiring healthcare professionals, need to consider our patient's life style and environment when forming a health care plan.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    ATTEND CLASS. Most college courses don't take attendance, therefore it is your responsibility to show up. Plus, this is a good class with a great professor who likes to facilitate discussion based learning. Trust me, you don't want to miss it.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I probably would recommend students to aviod this class unless you really want to learn about Health and Society. The professor was alright at lecturing, but the assignments were graded pretty harshly despite the fact that it was a freshman course. The topic was repetitive , and frankly, boring as hell.

    Course highlights:

    We need to improve our health and diets as a community instead of directly helping individuals.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to stay on top of your readings and talk tot he professor. Her lectures are informative so pay attention during class.
