HUMBIO 9: Public Service Internship Preparation (EARTHSYS 9, EDUC 9, PUBLPOL 74, URBANST 101)

Are you prepared for your internship this summer? This workshop series will help you make the most of your internship experience by setting learning goals in advance; negotiating and communicating clear roles and expectations; preparing for a professional role in a non-profit, government, or community setting; and reflecting with successful interns and community partners on how to prepare sufficiently ahead of time. You will read, discuss, and hear from guest speakers, as well as develop a learning plan specific to your summer or academic year internship placement. This course is primarily designed for students who have already identified an internship for summer or a later quarter. You are welcome to attend any and all workshops, but must attend the entire series and do the assignments for 1 unit of credit.

HUMBIO 11: Meet HumBio: a lecture series introducing HumBio themes

A lecture and discussion series designed for freshmen who want to learn more about Human Biology - either the major itself or the topics within its realm - by hearing from some of HumBio's most engaging faculty. Most weeks the class will feature a faculty member addressing three central questions: What do I do? Why is it important? and What professional opportunities are possible for a person concentrating in my field? Some sessions will focus on navigating research and educational opportunities at Stanford. The course is not meant to cover a specific body of content, therefore the assignments for the class aim to build fundamental skills: taking useful notes, articulating questions or ideas prompted by presentations, visiting office hours, connecting lecture topics with current events or journal articles, paying full courteous attention to speakers and peers, reflecting on potential majors, and creating a study guide. There will be no required readings or exams.
