Join us at Laurier

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.

What is Health Administration?

Technological advances can prolong life, but they aren’t available to everyone. We have health-care systems that offer treatments when we get sick, but why do we fall ill in the first place? And why do only some people use the health care system when they are sick?

The Health Administration program provides you with a broad understanding of the diverse factors affecting the provision, management and utilization of health care, both domestically and internationally.

You'll take a blend of health studies, leadership, and management courses to provide you with an overview of the factors influencing health and illness and an understanding of Canadian health-care systems.

Graduates of the program will be prepared for important nonclinical roles in the health-care sector across Canada.

Earn a Degree and Certificate in Only Four Years

Combine theory and practice! You'll have the opportunity to specialize in either Human Resources Management or Community and Social Services Management through an integrated graduate certificate program through Conestoga College. You’ll earn both your degree from Laurier and your graduate certificate from Conestoga at the Brantford campus, all in only four years. (It would normally take you five to complete both.)

The combination of theory and practice will allow you to develop a greater understanding of the systems currently in place, the changes the systems may undergo to meet the growing demand for services, and how to operate successfully within the health-care setting.
