Questions & Answers
Will I get a chance to see the main tourist sites?
Absolutely! An abundance of information on what to see and how to get there will be provided to you. In fact, this site will
try and post as many up-to-date travel information as possible. There is plenty of free time during the trip and you will have two
complete weekends free to do whatever and go anywhere you desire.
Is the course like most other courses?
In many respects it is and in some ways it is different. For those taking the course for credit there are required readings, a class
project, and a final exam to take just as in any course. At the same time the format is quite different. For the most part the course is
based on making site visitations to health and health promotion organizations. A take-home final exam will be given out at the end of the
course and you will have two weeks to complete and return it. Other course requirements for those taking the course for credit include
mandatory attendance at sessions, completing evaluation forms for each session, making a site visit to a health promotion organization
on your own, and maintaining a daily log throughout the trip. When the course details have been finalized, the course syllabus will be
available at this web site.
Are all the people on the trip taking the course for credit?
Almost all do. While the vast majority is taking it for credit, there may be others not taking the course for credit. If you have a
partner you would like to bring along, don't hesitate to inquire. Regardless, the course is available only to tuition paying students.
Do I need health insurance?
Yes, the University requires it and it is included in the cost of the trip for the period May 13th to June 2nd.
