The School of International Training (SIT) offers BC students a program in New Delhi
SIT: Public Health, Policy Advocacy, and Community
The Public Health, Gender, and Community Action program offers a field-based, experiential approach to learning. Main topics include: social determinants and the political economy of health, the scourge of malnutrition, and regional and grassroots approaches to improving access to healthcare. Each program has a small group of students (typically 10–35). Students gain high levels of access to many different stakeholders and experts relevant to the issues the program is examining. While some learning will be conducted at the SIT program center, extensive learning is done outside the classroom — in host communities, field stations, NGO headquarters, ecological sites, health clinics, and art studios.
