Minor in Health Sciences
The Minor in Health Sciences provides students with an interdisciplinary health perspective to better understand the experiences of individuals and populations both in Canada and around the world. Students are exposed to the interactions of bioscience, social and environmental health determinants and their combined influences on health, disease, disability, longevity and health equity.
A Minor in Health Sciences is also available to students enrolled in other University of Ottawa programs. In fact, it can be combined with programs in many other disciplines in science, social sciences or humanities. The minor provides an opportunity for students to develop, within the field of healthcare, broad, transferable intellectual skills, while acquiring a solid and diverse knowledge base.
This program can be chosen only as a second study module as part of a 120-unit bachelor’s degree that allows a minor.
Direct admission is not possible.
This program is offered in English and French.
