Integrative Health Humanities Certificate

The development of a Health Humanities Certificate that combines an interdisciplinary curriculum with experiential education.

This proposal seeks NEH funding to plan a Health Humanities Certificate at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. This interdisciplinary program will engage three humanities departments as well as the Departments of Psychology, Social Work, and the Institute for Health Sciences. Its integrated curriculum will require students to take a core course, Humanities, Health, and Society, and engage in an experiential practice, including collaborative research and internship opportunities. The objective for this interdisciplinary certificate is threefold: 1) to respond to student need in health related majors for humanities perspectives and pedagogies; 2) to provide students in the humanities with the opportunity to connect their expertise to health science pedagogies and experiential learning; and 3) to serve as a sustainable model for humanities-centered, interdisciplinary programs that fulfill UW- Eau Claire’s goal of ensuring student success through integrative, experiential education.
