Global Health, Human Rights, and the Rights of the Child in Cambodia (H516, GH 590, EDLPS 600, JSIS 596)
This Summer 2014 course offers a unique, multidisciplinary graduate-level study opportunity in Cambodia. Focusing on health and human rights of children, particularly those who have a disability, the course provides a classroom experience and an applied, skills-building practicum that explores the theoretical underpinnings and the practical applications of the rights of the child in the context of Cambodia's health system. Child rights are studied from legal and health services perspectives, combining methodologies of research and analysis required for quality field work.
The six-week course is approved for a total of 10 credits. Five of the credits are received through the practicum experience. The practicum experience will enable the student to work with NGOs and other health and legal professionals in the investigation and analysis of a faculty-guided and approved practicum project.
The course is open to graduate and professional students from other universities. IPE Website; Program Brochure. For questions, contact Beth Rivin: email@example.com, or Course TA, Ashley Paintner: firstname.lastname@example.org.
