Dedicated to engaging students at every level, the Center for Humanitarian Emergencies offers a participatory course for Emory University undergraduate students. Through group exercises simulating emergency situations, students gain awareness of core emergency strategies and humanitarian career opportunities.
GHCS300R: Health in Humanitarian Emergencies
This course covers the technical and management principles that undergird planning, implementing, and evaluating health programs for displaced populations in developing countries. Initially a graduate-level course, this course introduces undergraduate students to public health and trains graduate students in teaching.
“Having six mentors in the graduate co-instructors, plus the professor, has been helpful for us in answering questions and getting advice about career opportunities. It has opened doors for us to get connected to Rollins and the CDC and learn from people who’ve been there.”—Andrew Mitchell 16C
