​Faculty members and experts from several Central Michigan University academic areas have partnered to create a new Critical Engagements pop-up course to address the coronavirus crisis from a variety of perspectives.

Perspectives on Pandemics (LAR 397D) is a one-credit online class that runs from April 6 to May 3, 2020. Faculty with expertise in biomedicine, economics, history, public health, literature, medical anthropology and public policy will offer four weeks of lectures, discussions, readings and other materials to put COVID-19 and other pandemics in context with world history and culture.

Course registration is now open. Interested students may contact Christi Brookes, director of academic initiatives in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and professor of French, for more information or register directly using CMU's Course Search and Registration portal.

This course is organized by the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences Critical Engagements initiative, a collaborative project that highlights how the university tackles the world's most pressing problems.
