BACH 6300 Advanced Theories of Individual and Community Health


3 SCH. This seminar provides students with an intermediate to advanced level of understanding of the theoretical foundations of individual and community health. The course covers theory development, measurement of theories, and use of theories in intervention development. Since health behaviors occur in a multilevel context, the course emphasizes the integration of individual, community and ecological approaches to helping people change. Through reading, discussion, and presentation, students learn how to use theories both to explain behavior and to influence the health status of individuals and communities.
