4.      COURSE INFORMATION: MEL 4601: Diseases of Eating (NEW POSTING):
Still trying to decide which courses to register for? Diseases of Eating (MEL4601) is conducted entirely online and thus allows an amount of flexibility that cannot be found in traditional courses.   You do not even need to be in Gainesville to register for or take the class. All assignments and quizzes are submitted online, and correspondence to professors and TAs is via e-mail (of course, we can be available in person). The class is offered by the UF's College of Medicine and may be of particular interest to students pursuing a career in health-related fields. However, it is open to all undergraduate students of any major and there are no prerequisites. All quizzes are "open-book" and there are no final exams.

MEL 4601, takes a personal look into eating disorders and how they affect students, friends, and family. The theorized relationship between pathological eating and addiction will be addressed. Important course topics include pediatric and adult obesity as well as anorexia & bulimia nervosa. The various options for treatment will be described.

The course is designed for students with an interest in the physical, mental/emotional and social aspects of eating disorders and addiction. It is experiential in nature and written assignments are reflective of learning experiences and opinion based.
