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 honours program can enrol in a learning track 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 2nd year, they can declare their desired learning track to their academic advisor, then as they enter 4th year, they must complete the Learning Track Declaration form so that it will appear on their transcript.
