One Health Summer Online Course

This summer, K-State Olathe is offering high school juniors and seniors a free, non-credit, online course about One Health. One Health describes the complex interrelationships between humans and animals, humans and the environment, and animals and the environment.

The course is designed to give students a taste of what will be required to take an online college-level course. Students also will learn how to work collaboratively using online resources and effectively manage their time in an online course. 

Topics discussed

• Diseases shared between animals and humans

• Food safety

• Environmental issues impacting humans and the health of the ecosystem

Class structure

The course is largely online. The first and final classes will be in person at the K-State Olathe campus. In the first class, students will be paired into groups. After collaborating online for the three weeks, each group will give a short presentation about a One Health topic introduced in the course. 


Enrollment opens March 1 and closes May 15. The class is free.
