Co-ordinated by the Faculty of Medicine and in co-operation with the Faculties of Science and Arts, the Faculty of Medicine offers an undergraduate degree in Health Sciences, the Bachelor of Health Sciences Honours (BHSc Honours), consisting of three majors (Bioinformatics, Biomedical Sciences, and Health and Society. (Details on majors are given in 4.5 Program Details.) Because of the admissions standard and GPA requirements, it is expected that most students will attain Honours standing. However, those students who progress to the fourth year but do not attain a cumulative GPA of 3.30 over the last 30 half-course equivalents (HCE) will graduate with a BHSc. The BHSc Honours degree will normally take four years. Students are selected through an admissions process and have direct entry into the first year. The deadline to apply for admission is April 1. Admission offers will be made by mid April.
A Health Sciences Minor is available in Health and Society. (Details are given in 4.5 Program Details.)
