Overview

Humber’s Bachelor of Health Sciences – Workplace Health and Wellness degree program is a unique honours program, the first of its kind in Canada. You will explore various specialized areas including the most current developments in evidence-informed, interprofessional practice within a business-oriented framework.

This program is multi-disciplinary in nature, drawing from the fields of leadership; mental, physical, and psychological health; business and communication; and knowledge translation. All combined, students acquire the competencies to deliver proactive, effective workplace health and wellness programs within organizational settings. Together, these programs will promote employee health, workplace culture, employee engagement and retention.

Principles of equity, effective change management, diversity, ethical and legal practices, and knowledge translation are the foundation of your learning.

A team approach to learning collaboratively is key and is emphasized in the classroom.

Work Placement

You will participate in one mandatory paid or unpaid work placement to gain 14 weeks of full-time professional work experience. The placement will occur in diverse settings such as for-profit or not-for-profit enterprises, health and wellness consulting firms, governmental or educational institutions, or other health and wellness businesses.

The experience will enhance the theoretical learning in the program and you will gain the hands-on skills required to successfully develop, evaluate and implement a workplace health and wellness initiative.

Career opportunities

Growing research supports the benefits and return on investment for workplace wellness programs, therefore Canadian employers are increasing their interest and investment in these initiatives. Graduates will be competitive candidates for health and wellness positions in an array of workplaces. Possible employment opportunities include working as an entrepreneur in the workplace health and wellness industry or working as a member of a health and wellness team within privately funded (i.e., corporate wellness programs) and publicly funded programs (i.e., public health).
