Humanities and Health Connections Certificate Program

The development of a Humanities and Health Connections certificate program for undergraduates in the College of Arts & Sciences and the School of Education and Health Sciences.

We seek an NEH Humanities Connections Planning Grant to develop an undergraduate certificate program in Humanities and Health Connections (HHC) at the University of Dayton. Rooted in our interdisciplinary Common Academic Program, the certificate draws on faculty in anthropology, English, history, biology and the health sciences to develop a certificate program for pre-health professionals that centralizes the human experience of health through interdisciplinary and community engaged learning. The HHC certificate addresses three learning goals: Human Complexity of Health & Community, Community Health Experience, and Knowledge-Based Empathy. The planning team includes faculty with successful co-teaching and interdisciplinary experiences. The team has identified three areas of local community health to explore: food insecurity, opioid addiction, and antibiotic resistance. Grant funds will be used to develop the certificate curriculum, proposal, and assessment plan.
