College of San Mateo
New Classes


Students enrolled in any of the classes in this learning community will consider the work of Dr. Paul Farmer, an unconventional and idealistic man determined to grapple with the seemingly insoluble problems of health in poor countries, as described in Tracy Kidder’s Pulitzer Prizewinning book, Mountains Beyond Mountains. From the perspectives of various disciplines, the classes will explore, during regular class hours, the complex economic, medical, political, sociological, and moral issues that suggest global health deserves our attention. It is not necessary to enroll separately for the Mountains Beyond Mountains Learning Community. Students who enroll in one of the sections below will automatically be enrolled in the Mountains Beyond Mountains Learning Community.
