	A portion of the above section reserved for majors
This course introduces students to the historical study of infectious
diseases.  We survey the conditions of human health and disease in the past,
and we examine the social and behavioral responses of human societies with
epidemics.  A good background in either history or the life sciences is
necessary, because the readings are not at a simplified, introductory level.
Student grading is based on performance and in objective quizzes and essay
examinations.
