Courses Overview

An understanding of human health is incomplete without an understanding of health within the global context.  A complex web of relationships and interactions produce themes of global health that can be seen as emergent properties of the human experience.

Understanding and addressing global health issues effectively demands an interdisciplinary academic experience. The BHSc (Honours) Program offers a suite of courses focused on global health. The global health curriculum has undergone revisions recently to enhance flexibility, accessibility, and interdisciplinarity for students. Effective 2018/2019, BHSc Level 1 and 2 students interested in global health can consider completing an Interdisciplinary minor in Globalization Studies offered by the Faculty of Social Sciences, which has integrated the BHSc (Honours) global health courses under the theme of Globalization & Health. An array of courses are offered by the Faculties of Health Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences on a variety of themes. Additional information and a list of courses is available in the Undergraduate Calendar.

As we transition to the new global health curriculum structure, the options available to students depend on their cohort. BHSc (Honours) students entering Level 3 in 2018/2019 may apply for the specialization or complete the Interdisciplinary minor in Globalization Studies.
