PHSC 196: Peer Health Education Class
Peer Health Education (PHSC 196) is designed to challenge and expand students’ beliefs and perceptions about wellness through exercises in introspection and open discourse. The course will also provide students with current information on a variety of wellness-related topics including general wellness, alcohol and substance abuse, nutrition, eating disorders, mental health, sexual health, and sexual assault prevention. In addition, students will be challenged to grow as leaders and peer educators. Students will develop important basic listening, leadership, counseling, group facilitation, public speaking, and presentation skills. Upon completion of this course, students are eligible to become a member of the Peer Health Education (PHE) program. This program is composed of a diverse group of SCU students who facilitate interactive presentations, discussions, panels, workshops, and wellness events for other students.
PHSC 196 is held once per year in the Winter quarter. In order to be admitted, students must submit an application and participate an interview. If accepted, students will receive a permission number to register for the class.
