UBC has developed a new credit course that delves into the implications the global health crisis has had on society.

Registration for the COVID-19 and Society course filled up in just two weeks for the September start date, with another 75 students on the waiting list.

"The course helps students make connections between their own experience of COVID-19 and larger social patterns occurring locally and globally," said Katherine Lyon, course instructor and developer, in a news release. It will also explore day-to-day life during this unprecedented time and how people maintained social interactions while under lockdown.
