Primary Instructor:

This seminar focuses on population and health in South Africa in transition. The instructor has traveled to South Africa numerous times since 1995 and is actively engaged in research about South Africa. This seminar discusses the historical roots and the current health and population situation in South Africa. Hopefully the complexity of the situation in South Africa will be understood as well as the kinds of choices that need to be made as South Africa faces the future. Each student will write and present a substantial research paper.

This is an LSA Honors course with first preference for LSA Honors students.

The course is also an International Studies Across the Curriculum course. There is an optional two-week trip to South Africa in May, with two course credits. There will be a charge for this trip, although there is no additional tuition charge.
