Integrative Seminar on Healthy Cities

This directed study is intended to fulfill the “Integrative Seminar” requirement for students completing the Graduate Certificate in Healthy Cities. It is a one-credit course. The course content combines perspectives from public health, public policy, and the built environment within a single classroom. Class sessions are organized around a guest speaker series. Speakers from a variety of disciplines will meet with students to discuss the significance of using interdisciplinary approaches to address public health in urban contexts.


Course meeting times are arranged by the instructor.

This seminar meets eight times during the semester. Class sessions are organized around a guest lecture series. Meetings will occur on select Wednesdays or Thursdays, usually from 4:00-5:30pm, although on some days we may meet later, for instance 5-6:30pm. This flexibility is to accommodate the scheduling constraints of guest speakers. The first day of class will be Wednesday, January 11 at 4:00pm in 2227 A&AB. The final meeting schedule for the semester will be distributed at that time.
