Global Health and Mental Health in Deaf Communities
Professional Studies (PST)
*Online Social Work Course *
*July 7 – August 8, 2008*
This 3-credit course is designed as an online course and introduces the student in the allied health and mental health professions to the global health issues and needs of the deaf and hard of hearing community. The course covers the salient issues in health and mental health care of a population that has been historically overlooked by health care providers due to attitude and communication barriers. The intent of the course is to develop knowledge, values and skills which will give students a basic understanding of the health and mental health issues of deaf people, the health disparities to this population, and the need to become advocates for quality care. This course is offered for both Graduate (SWK 795) and Professional Studies (PST 876) credit.
If you register for this course as PST 876 (professional studies), then the cost is $690 for US citizens and $1,380 for international students.
If you register for this course for full academic credit as SWK 795, then tuition is $1931 for US citizens and $3861 for international students.
