You will redefine and advance health and human science for the ongoing betterment of society. Our commitment to your education excellence is demonstrated through our professors who are nationally and internationally recognized experts; through our leading-edge research; and through community partnerships that improve health outcomes locally and globally.

Some of our students continue in professional schools such as medicine, pharmacy, chiropractic, dentistry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, law school and teachers college, among others.

We study health issues using diverse methods such as experimental and epidemiological techniques, clinical case studies, experiential learning, oral histories and ethnographic observation. Our learning goes beyond the campus to encompass communities, hospitals, clinics, sports fields, schools, industry and international sites.

The Faculty of Health brings together five key areas of study:

  • Kinesiology & Health Science
  • Psychology
  • Nursing
  • Global Health
  • Health Studies (Health Policy, Health Management and Health Informatics)

No other university in Canada combines these strengths in equivalent depth.
