Student Engagement

Undergraduate and Graduate Courses

Institute Director Dr. Eric G. Bing's public health courses are designed to help SMU students develop their leadership skills.

In Pandemics! The Science of Disease Spread, Prevention, and Control (APSM/ANTH/MNO 4344), students build their knowledge of the practical tools of disease control, including basic epidemiology and public health policy. In-class debates help students build their advocacy skills.

In Creating Impact in Global & Public Health (ANTH 4345/6345, APSM 4355, MNO 4345), students work in teams to help community organizations develop strategies to address real-world public health challenges. In addition to learning best practices for strategy and effective implementation, students receive team coaching from leaders across the health system.
