Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

The health and social services industry is the second-largest employment sector in Canada. In our Health Administration program, you'll learn to help manage issues associated with rising demands for health care, costlier and more diverse treatments, and the ways in which infectious disease outbreaks (such as the H1N1 virus) disrupt the economy.

If you are interested in the factors influencing health care, then being a Health Administration student is the perfect fit for you.

We also offer a BA in Community Health and a BASc in Public Health.
