Administrative Assistant Mary Montgomery 905-688-5550, extension 4228 Academic South 329 brocku.ca/hlsc The Bachelor of Child Health is a collaborative effort between the Department of Health Sciences and the Department of Child and Youth Studies and is managed by the Department of Health Sciences. It is designed for students wishing to pursue careers concerned with the health of children. The program provides students with a biological, psychological and sociological overview of the major determinants of health from birth though adolescence. Early during undergraduate studies, it is the students' responsibility to research prerequisites for advanced courses as well as admission requirements for any post-graduate programs to which they may plan to apply.
