Stevens Global Ambassadors Project:
Public Health and Conflict in the Middle East

This spring, CMES is excited to offer UC Berkeley students a unique opportunity to study alongside students at leading educational and health institutions in the Middle East.

Sign up today for MES 199: Public Health and Conflict in the Middle East

Conducted in tandem with leading educational and health institutions in the Middle East and North Africa, this project-based virtual exchange course will offer students the unique opportunity to learn about the public health implications of conflict and forced migration while participating in a meaningful cross-cultural exchange. Looking specifically at public health issues related to recent conflicts in the region (i.e. the Iraq War and the Syrian Refugee Crisis), the course will be comprised primarily of case studies and an interdisciplinary project, in which UC Berkeley students team up with students and health professionals from the region to identify and intervene in a relevant public health issue.

Units: Two

Time: Variable

Classroom: Online
