Taught by an exceptionally warm instructor. Dr. Bic delivers a good solid and approachable overview of the field. Also notable for her motherly instincts for her students. Loaded with extra reading links and sites to check out.

This was a really fantastic class. The instructor was great and the class participation made it very interesting. 15,000 people were signed up from all over the world! The textbooks were optional, but the other materials were wonderful, downloadable slides and links to other websites. The guest speakers spoke on varied topics and were very good. This is my first class with Coursera, but I've already started another, based on this experience. I would suggest that you need a strong interest in health, at the least, but probably not any formal degree.

Absolutely LOVED this course, I recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning about Public Health. It is a 10 week course that is condensed into 5 weeks so there are a lot of lectures and supplementary reading involved. But it is enjoyable and educational, it is my favourite course so far. The quizzes are simple and the peer-assessed assignment is an interesting and interactive task. The lecturer, Dr. Zuzana Bic, is so passionate about the topic and she keeps it light with a sense of humour, I believe she is a big reason for the success of this course!
