BIOL 481, Section 01: Special Topics: Appalachian Herpetology - Dr. Matthew Close

This course takes students out of a traditional classroom setting and immerses them in the heart of Appalachia. Here, we discuss biological concepts such as forest structure, the biology of reptiles and amphibians, and conservation of wildlife in the region as well as human impacts such as agriculture, natural resource extraction and global climate change. By the end of the course students begin to understand that their experience attending a school in the heart of Appalachia is a shared experience globally--that the day to day activities they involve themselves in can be traced to some of the problems of the region which are in turn problems in other regions in the world. Therefore, through the course, students are expected to measure and understand environmental problems through the lens of reptiles and amphibians, but are at the same time developing the standards by which they make decisions at local and global scales.

Summer I

NURS 450, Section 01: Current Issues in Nursing: Korea/Taiwan - Dr. Eunyoung Lee

This course was designed for students to develop global competency in health care by analyzing and comparing the key characteristics of healthcare system and health performance as well as major health issues among the different countries. An eight factor-model will be utilized to evaluate the healthcare system in the individual countries in terms of “true access to care”. Specific attention will be paid to the developmental history of the national healthcare systems, financing, delivery infrastructure, and health disparities. Also, people’s value and culture will be reviewed how it impacts the health care practice and health care outcomes in the selected countries.
