Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

About the Community Health Program at Laurier

In our Bachelor of Arts and Science (BASc) in Community Health program, you'll examine the impacts of biology, environmental quality, social status, health-care services and government policies on risks to the health of individuals and communities, and gain the research skills necessary to improve our understanding of these relationships.

The requirements to complete this program capture the core material typically associated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health or Life Sciences, and supplement that material with the essential knowledge obtained from a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health Studies or Community Health.

In addition to the core requirements of the degree, you can customize your program of study by selecting elective courses that best meet your own educational and career goals.

Graduates of Community Health find employment in many health-related careers and by tailoring their studies, they’re prepared to apply to graduate and professional postgraduate programs.

"The best part of this program is that you learn the social aspects regarding health and well-being, as well as the nitty gritty science of how certain pathologies develop. There is so much knowledge and power in understanding that these two play a huge role in this thing we call health!"

– Anna Graczyk (BA '16)
