Co-ordinated by the Cumming School of Medicine and in co-operation with the Faculties of Science and Arts, the Cumming School 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 90 units 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 March 1. Admission offers will normally be made by mid-April.
A Health Sciences Minor is available in Health and Society. (Details are given in 4.5.5 Program Details.)
A Bioinformatics Minor is also available. (Details are given in 4.5.3 Program Details.)
