Risk, Heath and Safety

11:374:430


Description

In this course, students will explore many scientific, cultural, and perceptual aspects of environmental risk issues. We will discuss, in depth, toxicological and epidemiological concepts, psychological aspects of risk perception and coping, and influences on self-protective behavior. We will also spend time discussing risks and the media, and how to communicate with the public about risks.

This course has three main learning goals. When you have completed the class you should have a demonstrable understanding of the basic principles of toxicology and epidemiology. You should be able to analyze the characteristics of a hazard and identify likely influences on perception of risk; and, you should be able to put together a practical plan to communicate about those risks with the public.
