This course seeks to heighten understanding of the social and behavioral factors that contribute to health decisions and behaviors, with an ultimate goal of learning how to utilize these factors in improving public health efforts. Through a set of experiential learning exercises, students will learn to apply the science of health behavior change in their own lives. The course is appropriate for students interested in health care and public health, as well as individuals who are interested in learning to apply the science of behavior change to improve their personal wellbeing.

I highly recommend this course. Marney is the best professor I have had. She is funny, engaging, and cares deeply about each of her students as individuals. Furthermore, this is the type of class that helps you not only academically/professionally, but also personally. The class is genuinely fun. The engagement with other students is awesome, and the projects challenge you to try new things. And the long-term impacts on one's personal health are apparent.
10/10 recommend taking this course. The concepts I learned are ones that I apply to all aspects of my life, and have shared with family/friends. Marney makes the content extremely engaging and relatable, and this course really challenges how you think about behavior change within yourself as well as at the population level. I learned a TON and have grown both academically and personally from Marney’s teachings.
