DENTISTRY

The Western School of Dentistry provides a four-year program leading to the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. The program ensures that graduates acquire the skills and knowledge to move confidently into general dental practice. Students also are well prepared in the scientific background required for continued professional education and intellectual growth.

 

EDUCATION

Western's Bachelor of Education program prepares teachers in four program streams: primary/junior (i.e., junior kindergarten to grade six), junior/intermediate (i.e., grades four to ten), intermediate/senior (grades seven to twelve), and technological studies. The program offers a variety of approaches to learning including small class settings, workshops, laboratory activities, lectures, and practicum. You will develop a strong portfolio, use case studies, participate in group projects and problem-solving activities, and have opportunities to engage in online course work. More than a third of the program is spent in school classrooms where you begin to integrate theory with practice. You will interact with professors, classroom teachers, pupils in schools and other student teachers, you can sample the wide range of extracurricular activities offered.

LAW

Western Law prepares national and international leaders in the practice of law, business, and the public service. We consistently have one of the best placement records of any Canadian law school with close to 100 percent placement of students seeking articles over past years.

MEDICINE

The Schulich School of Medicine at Western is one of Canada's top schools for medical research and education with more than 1,000 faculty members, several research institutes, and over 40 accredited postgraduate specialty programs. We play an important role in the health care community of Southwestern Ontario. As a result, you can choose from a range of settings for clinical education.

An important point of note is that The Schulich School of Medicine does not have a preference for specific majors. There is neither a preference for science or non-science degrees. Students who select science should do so because they are fascinated by and have a genuine curiosity about scientific inquiries since Western like many other institutions is open to admitting students from a variety of academic backgrounds including the arts and social sciences. If your plan is to enrol in medical school, it is important that you consider a major that you enjoy and one in which you perform well.
