Fairbanks School of Public Health Undergraduate Course Descriptions Program Code Course Letter Course Number Course Title Credits Prerequistes Course Description An introduction to public health disciplines, topics and issues. PBHL P 100 Topics in Public Health 3 PBHL S 101 Disease, Disasters and Disparities 3 This undergraduate course will expose upper division students to a variety of public health topics including epidemiology, environmental and occupational health, social and behavioral sciences, public health preparedness, health policy and management. Guest speakers will introduce students to the various roles and functions of public health science and practice. PBHL H 120 Contemporary Health Issues 3 This course offers students a basic introduction to the U.S. health care system through a selective review of current issues and challenges in health policy and management. During the semester, we will explore a number of contemporary health issues in public health, environmental health, and health care delivery. PBHL P 120 Careers in Public Health 3 This undergraduate course will expose students to a variety of public health careers. Students will hear from public health professionals who hold a variety of positions in epidemiology, environmental and occupational health, social and behavioral sciences, public health preparedness, biostatistics, maternal-child-family health, chronic and infectious disease prevention, and health policy and management. Professionals from the private and public sectors will introduce students to the many careers in public health and to the various roles and functions of public health professionals. The course will focus on careers at all levels of education; bachelor s degree, master s degree and doctoral degree levels. PBHL H 200 Health Care Accounting 3 Health Care Accounting will provide the students with a foundation in health care accounting from long-term care to acute care. Topics will include a balance sheet or statement of financial position; income statement or statement of revenues and expenses; journals ledgers, trial balances and discrimination of formatting financial statements between acute care and long-term care organizations. PBHL P 200 Topics in Public Health 3 An introduction to public health disciplines, topics and issues. PBHL B 300 Introduction to Biostatistics 3 Math-M118 This is an introductory survey of statistical reasoning and analysis.

PBHL p 300 Topics in Public Health 3 An introduction to public health disciplines, topics and issues. PBHL H 315 Sex, Drugs, and Public Health 3 In this course, we will look at high-risk health behaviors through a public health lens. The term high-risk can refer to both behaviors and groups. High-risk behaviors are activities people engage in that make them more vulnerable to contracting specific health problems, while high-risk groups are collections of individuals prone to engage in high-risk behaviors. The effects of high-risk health behaviors extend beyond the individual who engage in them. For instance, individuals who engage in unprotected sex are at risk of both contracting and spreading sexually transmitted diseases. Additionally, because high-risk behaviors are associated with lower-income groups, much of the financial burden related to treatment of illness resulting from high-risk behaviors is passed on to the rest of society through the rising costs of health care. The first part of this course will be concerned with introducing students to the major theories related to the study of health risk. The second part of the class will focus more in-depth on specific high risk populations and the strategies that organizations and communities use to address the health problems associated with them. Some of the high-risk populations we will look at include: intravenous drug users, men who have sex with men (MSM), and those who are homeless. This is a writing intensive course.
