New summer course to examine COVID-19; enroll now

The College of Health Sciences has launched a new course to be offered this summer: “COVID-19: A Public Health Approach.”

Developed by members of the Marquette Health Equity Community of Practice, this new summer course offering will examine the novel coronavirus pandemic through multiple lenses in this team taught course.

Students who wish to better understand  COVID-19 and how the world is responding to it should enroll today.

This course takes a multidisciplinary approach to examine COVID-19 from a biological, epidemiological, social and ethical perspective. Learners will have opportunities to hear from a variety of faculty experts from diverse fields to gain an understanding of the spread of COVID-19, its impact on society and the public health response.

This course is open to all – there are no prerequisites. It will apply to the new Public Health Minor, which the College of Health Sciences will launch in fall 2020.

The course will be held during Summer Session 2 (July 6 through Aug. 15), and it is 100% online. Learn more at
