Minor in Health Sciences

For students in non-Health Sciences degree programs at Western, the Minor is an excellent option to complement your main area of study with core Health Sciences knowledge. Students in the Minor can expect to take courses covering health promotion, healthcare ethics, childhood and adolescent health, and health in aging populations, among several other options.

Progression requirements:

In order to progress into the Minor in Health Sciences with Biology after first year, students must achieve the following:

  • Minimum grade of 60% in each of Health Sciences 1001A/B and 1002A/B

Dual Degree with the Ivey School of Business

This option gives students the opportunity to complete two degrees within the space of five years. At the end of that time, students graduate with an Honors Bachelor of Health Sciences from the School of Health Studies and an Honors Business Administration Degree from the Ivey School of Business. This fast-paced program is an ideal choice for students who see themselves pursuing careers in healthcare administration, health management, and health entrepreneurship.
