Optional Learning Tracks
Students with an interest in a particular field of the health sciences are able to further customize their curriculum by taking one of seven specially-designed learning tracks. These collections of themed courses offer in-depth investigation in a variety of fields ranging from the Molecular Basis of Biology to Global and Population Health. They are completely optional and any student in the BHSc program can enrol in the learning track(s) of their choice.
Each Learning Track consists of discipline-specific core courses and an additional 4 courses (typically 12 units) that students may choose from a specified list of BHSc option courses. It will be the responsibility of the student to complete any prerequisite courses required. The completed Learning Track(s) will appear on the student’s transcript.
As students enter their 4th year (or 3rd year if completing the General degree), they must complete their official Learning Track declaration so that the track(s) will appear on their transcript. Students should use the Academic Progress Report in SOLUS to confirm that they meet the requirements for their selected track(s) prior to submitting their declaration. Do not apply to graduate until your declared learning track(s) appear on your unofficial transcript.
For students graduating in Fall 2023 only, please complete this Learning Track Declaration Form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to applying to graduate.
For students graduating in 2024, please use our new Learning Track Declaration portal. The deadline to submit your learning track declaration for Spring 2024 graduation is October 30th @ 4:00pm (ET).
