New Summer Online Course Explores Pandemics and Social Science

March 24, 2020

We are pleased to add a highly relevant course to our Summer Online Course selection.

Pandemics and Social Science. What can social science teach us about disease outbreaks and pandemics? Topics will include the history of pandemics, how they are portrayed in popular culture such as novels and movies, the psychology underlying individual and community responses to disease outbreaks in different contexts, and the politics of government and international approaches to pandemic control and preparedness.  Instructor is the 2020 winner of the College of Social Science Outstanding Teacher Award, Professor Erica Frantz.
