Epidemiology: A Vehicle for Thinking Critically.
Cowan, Marjorie Murphy
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v8 n2 p41-62 1997
Argues that epidemiology, the study of disease in populations, is an ideal upper-level course for undergraduate liberal arts curricula because it offers a forum for learning and applying critical-thinking skills, as well as other skills important for the liberally educated student, such as analysis of political, social, and demographic contexts for disease distribution and reasoned analysis of data.
