Perspectives on Global Health is an intensive experience designed for high school students ages 15-18. With global health as one of the biggest topics in recent times, students around the world are invited to join in the conversation as we explore key topics on global health with a global citizenship approach. While it may be difficult to travel at this time, we’re excited to bring this enriching University of Toronto academic experience to you!
Students will explore and analyze the complex factors that highlight key global health challenges and also have the opportunity to explore their own role in finding solutions to these challenges as engaged global citizens. Under the guidance of a U of T instructor and student life facilitator, students will be encouraged to learn from one another through teamwork, creative projects, and interactive activities.
Classes & Evaluation
Each class will be held online for two hours with a significant amount of time dedicated to group work. Students are also expected to study and work independently on assignments and tasks outside of class. Upon successful completion of the course (including the capstone project), participants will receive a certificate of completion from University of Toronto, New College. Please note that this course is an enrichment program and does not provide advanced standing or credit for university courses. Students are encouraged to be on camera during class and unmute their microphones to participate in class discussions.
Upcoming Dates & Fees
Please Note: A mandatory orientation will take place for students 1-2 weeks prior to the course start date. Students will be notified closer to the orientation date.
