Overview of 3 JPP Courses:
ENG 309: Grant Proposal Writing - While all JPP courses include a grant proposal writing component, ENG 309 is an intensive seminar of instruction and practice in specialized forms of writing.
PHT 375: Health & Social Justice - Health is an asset and a resource critical to human development that benefits society as a whole. But realizing health for all members of society is a matter of social justice, which depends on reducing social and economic inequality and increasing democracy. This course will allow the student to explore many aspects of health inequalities including how health inequalities are rooted in injustices associated with racism, social class, and sex discrimination. Additionally, the course will review approaches that influence the social determinants of health and encourage students to develop principles for action and research.
PSY 220: Child Maltreatment - Every 10 seconds in the U.S., a child is abused or neglected. Why does this happen? What are the short and long-term consequences? How do we help survivors of abuse? This course explores the answers to these questions and more.
