FINANCE YOUR STUDIES
The Honours Bachelor in Health Sciences program enables students to study health and its related components from an interdisciplinary perspective.
This unique approach allows students to discover innovative ways to examine, measure and unravel complex health problems at all life stages, in Canada and around the world. These future health professionals will be challenged to understand biological, environmental and social factors, both in isolation and as interactive health determinants.
Students will build on a biosciences foundation to integrate social and environmental health determinants in the study of health communication, disability and illness, and pharmacology.
Significant training in health research methodologies is provided through courses in statistics, quantitative and qualitative approaches to research, epidemiology and health program development and evaluation. This program also includes select opportunities to conduct research thesis projects.
