Public Health at Sea
Spring Break 2024
This course introduces the vessel sanitation program and reviews requirements for Public Health at Sea through the lens of the Center for Disease Control. Students will explore how a small floating city manages day-to-day public health issues such as: medical facilities, portable water systems, food safety, swimming and whirlpools, housekeeping, pest and insect management, child activity centers, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning for 5500 plus people from different countries and cultures. Students learn about community and environmental health firsthand with interviews, discussions, and field trips into the below deck workings of a cruise ship.
This course will be 3 credits. The course requires a series of pre-travel (21hours) of preparatory classes on public health to prepare students for this field experience. The course will meet weekly in the spring semester for planning, information sessions, and pre-departure orientation.
Students will stay on the Anthem of the Seas cruise ship. Classes will meet on locations throughout the cruise ships and in the ports of Port Canaveral, FL, Coco Cay, Bahamas, and Nassau, Bahamas.
