Hear from our explorers

“Prior to taking this course, I wanted to enter the medical field, but I did not know what area of the field I wanted to pursue. Now that I have gained knowledge on Global Public Health, I’m very interested in making the area of Public Health a part of my future academic plans.”

“I have made great friendships during this 10-week course. I am certainly planning on maintaining these connections. Everyone was amiable and pleasant in this course. We shared different points of view, different world visions, and our daily lives with each other. Respect and understanding were two important notions throughout this course and were the things that made this course extremely precious. We were all so alike and different at the same time. We were all unique, which made this whole experience beautiful.”

“I feel like this course changed my perspective on so many things I do and live daily. Before this course I had a really set mentality, I wasn't understanding or tolerating at all towards people who had different ideas, and now I know that the correct way to act is to listen to everybody even though they don't have my mindset or thoughts.”
