Program Information

School: Dalhousie University
Faculty: Faculty of Health Professions
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Public Health Education and Promotion
Description: Health promotion is about encouraging the health and well-being of individuals and their communities. It draws from such diverse disciplines as communications, epidemiology, marketing, medicine, psychology, sociology, and statistics.

Our program is unique in Canada. We accept only 40 students each year so we can develop a small, strong, well-rounded group of health promotion specialists who work together in the program much as they will in the community. The School of Health and Human Performance’s interprofessional approach to learning means that you’ll take a series of HAHP courses with peers in the School’s other three programs—Kinesiology, Therapeutic Recreation, and Recreation Management—as well as courses with students in other Health Professions programs.
