Qualifications

Overview

Health Sciences students are passionate about getting involved in their communities and improving the health of the population. We promote opportunities for volunteering and gaining a well rounded education.

Health Sciences at UC provides students with a non-clinical degree and a multidisciplinary introduction to a range of important health issues: from genetics, to the health of populations, evidence-based decision making, psychology, education and public policy.

Many Health Sciences courses may be taken as part of the Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) or included in a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science.
