As the Department of Health Sciences, we are known for our one-of-a-kind degree programs which allow students to learn and gain experience about current health topics.
Our creative teaching methods enable students to learn and apply knowledge from biosciences, social sciences, statistical sciences, and the humanities to understand the health of individuals, families and communities.
We are committed to ensuring our students are able to learn, engage and make a difference to the health of the population at a local, national and global level through research and experiential education.
Our faculty are cutting-edge professionals who explore current topics that make a difference to society.
Through our strong community partnerships, students gain valuable experience in many health sectors from health research, hospital care, public health and community not-for-profit organizations.
The result is that our students are well prepared to move in to professional programs such as graduate degrees in health research, medical schools, physiotherapy, health policy and promotion, nursing and leadership roles.
