The Bachelor of Science (BSc) Major in Health Science program is designed to prepare students for public and private sector careers in health research, health practice, health product production and distribution, and health management. It also prepares students for entry into schools of health or graduate studies.
KPU’s health science degree will offer students an opportunity to integrate a solid lab-based science education with courses geared toward providing an overview of the Canadian health care system. The degree is designed around a core of required basic science and health science courses, complemented by electives that not only provide graduates with a solid science foundation but also with critical health research, communication, and management skills for future success.
The BSc Major in Health Science may be completed on a part-time or full-time basis, with students being admitted in September, January and May. The full program is offered at the Surrey campus, with many first and second year courses normally available on the Richmond campus. Some first year courses may also be offered on the Langley campus.
