Gerontology Scholarship Application
Hi all! We don’t have a lot, but I do want to let you know that
EDFS 410, 420, and 430 as courses that fit the medical humanities minor (see criteria down below). These are “Characteristics of Students with Mental Disabilities,” “Characteristics of Students with Emotional Disabilities,” and “Characteristics of Students with Learning Disabilities.”
Also, the Women’s and Gender Studies class, WGST 120, “The Sexuality of Childbirth,” will count toward the minor. Just please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re definitely taking it, as I have to fill out a special topics petition.
Also, Allison Foley will be teaching MEDH 200 over the summer- stay tuned for a flier and more information.
In addition to the courses listed in the catalogue, you may take:
HIST 116.17, 20474 TR 12:15-1:30, Steere-Williams
Epidemics and Revolutions. The recent global epidemic crisis of Ebola provides a backdrop for the fascinating historical questions we will ask in this course, of how the social experience and cultural understanding of disease have shaped modern global history. We will explore how both chronic and infectious diseases have played a fundamental role in the development of modern modes of governance, public health, modern technologies, and a global economy. We will also examine how disease illuminates social attitudes about class, race, and colonialism in the period from the Enlightenment to the present. Using diverse examples such as cholera outbreaks in Europe, bubonic plague in India, syphilis in Africa, yellow fever in North America and the Caribbean, and HIV/AIDS across the globe, this course demonstrates that the historical analysis of disease is integral to understanding both “modernity” and “globalization”.
We have received a number of emails about courses counting for medical humanities. In lieu of a website, let me provide our mission here:
To count for the Medical Humanities minor, courses should address a human dimension of clinical medicine, public health, translational research, or medical technology. This includes
• human expression about medicine and health, including art, literature, music, art history etc
• study of the human factors affecting medical practice, including history, sociology, psychology, anthropology, classics, and religion, and
• analyses of debates surrounding medicine and health research, including philosophy, economics, and law.
If you feel that a course fulfills these requirements, feel free to email Dr. Rogers at email@example.com
Hi everyone! We are very excited to roll out our new medical humanities minor at the College of Charleston in Spring of 2020. Of course, any class you take or have taken will “count” as part of the minor, so this should be easy and a great selling point for pre-health professions and programs of study. Check us out here.
Stay tuned for exciting health humanities news from Charleston and beyond!
