A Health Humanities Concentration and Community-Based Learning

The development of a Health Humanities concentration at the University of Scranton.

This application proposes a Humanities Connections Planning Grant to fund the development of a new Health Humanities concentration at The University of Scranton. This concentration will emphasize the integral role of the humanities in shaping and transforming healthcare, health, and well-being. It aims not only at providing a more comprehensive education to the students enrolled in the programs for the health professions, but also seeks to develop new pedagogical practices informed by interdisciplinarity, community-based learning, and diversity and intercultural competence. These three interrelated areas of focus will guide the development of the concentration, with the support of institutional and community partners who have already expressed their interest and needs in relation to such a program, such as the Office for Community-Based Learning, the Leahy Community Health and Family Center, the Humanities Initiative, and the Pre-Medical and Pre-Health Professions Programs.
