SO/GE/HE 332 - The Impact of Globalization on Health & Development

This course will break down the complex concept of globalization into cultural, social, economic, political, and environmental processes that operate at multiple scales. In particular, it will provide students with the opportunity to interrogate what each of these processes mean for human health and development across space, in different places, over time, and at multiple scales.

Using a series of case studies this course will encourage students to consider how we, as a global community, think about globalization in order to commit humanity to positive outcomes (specifically with respect to health and development)? How do we put a priority on human health over economic wealth (and what is our motivation for doing so)? How do we support developing countries through globalization? How do we minimize the exploitation that results from globalization?
