The Faculty of Health Sciences provides career-oriented undergraduate programs with a primary focus on those programs that are innovative and responsive to the needs of students and employers. Practical opportunities are incorporated into courses to ensure students have had an opportunity to understand how they can apply their public health knowledge through a fourth-year research placement in the Public Health Field, either through public health initiatives on campus or in the local community. This approach creates continuity in our relationships with our community partners while providing students with the research and program implementation skills to pursue either employment or graduate studies in area of public health.
