WELCOME HEALTH SCIENCES STUDENTS!
The Department of Health Sciences at Laurier is designed for students interested in pursuing postgraduate opportunities in health-related fields. Students will approach the study of health through a combination of fundamental courses in biology, chemistry, psychology and math, as well as applied social sciences health courses. Exposure to health care practitioners and applied researchers will lend relevance and scope to the academic curriculum. Students begin, from day one, incorporating a health and wellness perspective into their studies. As the program progresses, students will develop their scientific investigative techniques, communication skills, critical thinking, core competencies in the foundational and applied health sciences, and the application of skills and knowledge in research and practice. Students will also gain hands-on laboratory and practical experience.
