Description: Carleton’s Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) is a unique, interdisciplinary and career-focused program that will provide you with the skills required to succeed in the rapidly changing world of healthcare and health research.

The BHSc program offers a broad-based educational foundation in health science, preparing students for the graduate and other postgraduate education required for a wide range of professional health-related careers. At the same time, students develop the skills and knowledge needed to compete in the job market for nonprofessional health-related occupations.

The BHSc (Honours) program is organized around five concentrations: Biomedical Sciences, Environment and Health, Global Health, Health Throughout the Lifespan and Disability and Chronic Illness. For those who would like to fuse two areas of study, it is possible to take a double concentration.
