This course is a basic introduction to the most devastating disease outbreaks in human and animal history. We will explore the long-lasting social implications of disease and evaluate control methods. We will use the geographical spread of these historic pandemics to predict where the next pandemic will strike.

Course work will consist of lectures, activities, discussions, case studies, and games. There are no pre-reqs, and no required textbooks for this freshman level course.
