Title:   Behavioral Determinants of Health (Online)      

Course Number:      CH 0099A   
Room: Online

Course Description:

Health professionals understand that human behaviors impact health and well-being. This course will take a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the impact of human behaviors on health, and explore foundational concepts – for example, “stress” – from a variety of social science perspectives. We will discuss the work of researchers and practitioners which investigates the influences and interactions of psychological, cultural, and biological factors on well-being and promoting healthful change. Students gain analytical skills to think critically about the behavioral determinants of health.

This is an online course that will not meet on campus. Most course activities and interactions will occur asynchronously and online through TRUNK, Tufts' learning management system. You can take this course from anywhere as long as you have a reliable internet connection (broadband highly recommended). Online courses are held to the same academic standards as campus-based courses and students can expect high levels of interaction with faculty and classmates.
 
Online courses at Tufts are not self-paced, however they typically offer much more flexibility for students. Typically, course content is organized in a weekly structure, so students will be expected to login and participate regularly. However students can generally set their own schedule within each week as long as assignments and activities are completed on time.
 
All online courses will have regular instructor office hours where students have an opportunity to speak to their teacher, via telephone or web conferencing. Some courses may require a live session(s), where students are expected to login to a web conferencing site at a certain date and time.
 
Some online courses require proctored exams. Students in the area can come to the Medford campus to take these exams at a specific date and time. Students taking the course truly from a distance will need to identify an acceptable proctor and go through Summer Session's proctor verification process.
