Work with a wide range of populations including children, adults, and the elderly. Learn about a variety of contemporary topics related to the field of health care and health promotion.

Attendance at your section is mandatory. Readings, a midterm project, and a final exam will be assigned. The Graduate Student Instructor for each section may state additional section requirements in class.

Students are required to obtain a TB Test and bring the results to the first day of class. If the student had a TB Test that is still valid through the term in which they are enrolling, they do NOT need to have an additional test. Bring a copy of the letter to the first day of class.

Intended Audience:

The purpose of Project Outreach is to allow students to learn about themselves and psychology by becoming involved in community settings. Outreach students engage in real work in the community, designed to meet community needs.

Class Format:

Because all sections of Project Outreach — PSYCH 211 — are for 3 credits (on a credit/no credit basis), the academic requirements for the course are uniform across all sections (except Careers: Building Your Personal Toolbox, Section 005) and include four hours of fieldwork placement, one hour of discussion section, and one hour of lecture each week.
