The Department of Health Sciences provides students with an understanding of the complexities of public health and health sciences through a focus on individuals, communities, and organizations.
Our Gerontology courses and programs will allow students to understand the needs and issues facing older adults, aging throughout the course of life, the impact of aging on populations and society, as well as the impact of society on people as they age. Students will understand the individual and societal influences on aging and their importance to health and well-being.
Our graduate programs will ensure students emerge as professionals and health researchers who will contribute to the enhancement of the overall health of Canadians.
