Redeemer University College is pleased to announce one more reason why You Belong Here. Starting in 2012, students will be able to enroll in the new Bachelor of Science program with a concentration in Health Sciences. Redeemer’s Health Sciences program is an Honours Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree that highlights the biological, environmental, psychological, spiritual, and social aspects of health and well-being. It is ideal for students who want to pursue a career in health sciences, and is also excellent preparation for professional health programs such as dentistry, health sciences, health studies, rehabilitation sciences, health law, nursing, physiotherapy and occupational therapy—to name a few. Incorporating a Christian perspective, Redeemer’s Health Sciences program is unique. Building on Redeemer’s strength in the liberal arts and sciences, it takes a holistic approach to the discipline, featuring a multidisciplinary study of health, wellness, and disease in human communities. Depending on the minor selected, graduates will be prepared for jobs in a wide range of related fields such as health-care administration, health education and promotion, with research and government health agencies, and in hospitals and non-profit organizations. Redeemer’s well-equipped labs and small class sizes will make this an excellent location to pursue a health sciences education. Students in the program at Redeemer will be eligible for a range of scholarships and can take advantage of internships and off-campus study opportunities.
