TAKE THIS CLASS!! Professor was super accommodating during COVID and allowed for a 72-hour grace period to turn in assignments late with NO penalty (and this also applied to the midterm!) I learned so much and the workload was light. Weekly reflections, 1 take-home midterm (we had 1 week to complete it - the average was about 95%), and an 'action plan' project that you work with in a group in your discussion sections. Super great course and he really aims to teach students and allows us to work with the material. Highly recommend!

I enjoyed this course. Dr. Kalofonos knows a lot about global health and it is was interesting taking this within the context of COVID-19. Assignments are easy, mainly all you need to do is the Team Action Project which is due at the end of the quarter. They were flexible and accommodating with deadlines given the circumstances, which everyone really appreciated. As long as you do your part, you should be fine. Eva is a really awesome TA and is always happy to help you out. Anyone who's interested in global health needs to take this course.

Take this class! The lectures are really interesting, we had some great guest speakers, and the grading is chill enough that you can really focus on learning. Students have to do short lecture response papers to make sure we're paying attention, but they are pretty straightforward. There is a midterm short-answer test. The class grade relies heavily on a group project, about 50% of the grade I think. It is a long paper and presentation that profiles a local public health issue and proposes a service project to address it. It's kind of unfortunate that we are randomly assigned to groups because there will always be someone who doesn't do their fair share. However, the group project was really valuable because I got to work with peers from different disciplines. The professor is nice and willing to chat about your interests and possible future paths. I just really loved this class and wish I could take it again.

Highly recommend this professor! Extremely accommodating during COVID. He allowed us to pick our topic for the action plan which was exciting.

Professor Kalofonos is a really knowledgeable and passionate guy. He was super understanding and accommodating during this whole pandemic fiasco. His lectures were engaging, and he emphasizes application of the topics rather than memorization. The class was broken down into a written midterm test, weekly lecture reflections, section participation, and a final group essay/presentation. The group project was super interesting because you can pick any global health issue you want and create an action plan to address it. If you put in decent effort you will definitely do well in this class. Highly recommend him!
