SA 3011 - Core Capstone - Disease Outbreaks


Many might think that the outbreak of a disease, whether it be a local epidemic, a global pandemic, or a periodic outbreak of an endemic one, is mostly a medical and/or scientific crisis but this is far from true. Disease outbreaks in humans or animals (including wildlife) have far-reaching effects on many aspects of life, including not just physical and mental health but the economy, politics, policy and the environment. This course will examine these effects in a way that incorporates historical and global perspectives of disease outbreaks, scientific examination and mathematical models of studying and resolving outbreaks, effects on economy that outbreaks can have and effects on health of both humans and domestic and wild animals in the area. This will incorporate oral and written communication in the course design to describe and document these effects. The course will have a mandatory in mock scenario of the outbreak on Saturday, April 2nd. Other students at the University will be invited to participate in the event as well. The students in the course will summarize the scenario as a final written paper with a draft and revisions as needed. They will also use what they have learned to design the scenario for the next semester. This course will fulfill the Core Capstone requirement
