Elective Track Rosario University
Full course description
In addition to the core modules offered during the first trimester students will have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge about specific topics in the second trimester through a choice of one of eleven elective tracks. These eleven tracks are carefully selected to avoid overlap with the core programme, yet ensuring relevant contribution to the core programme.
The track at Universidad del Rosario in Bogota focuses on community health. Students get the opportunity to participate in projects in the impoverished neighborhoods in Bogotá. These projects focus on maternal and child health, access to health care, mental health, childcare and medical home visits. In the classes students reflect on the projects using theoretical concepts offered in readings. Special attention is paid to specific Latin American traditions in political economy and sociology, that are highly influenced by Latin American's political development in general and the liberation movement in particular.
