Interested in learning about the social and cultural factors impacting our health?
Health studies enable you to explore the social, psychological and biological determinants of wellness and illness. Through classroom and internship experiences you will learn about the tools necessary to understand and evaluate health-related theory, research and policy.
The Bachelor of Health Studies is a joint degree between the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies and the Faculty of Arts in partnership with the First Nations University of Canada.
It aims to provide students with an integrated understanding of the ways in which social, economic and cultural “determinants of health” shape individual beliefs, attitudes and practices, which in turn affect the physiological and biological functioning of individuals.
The degree promotes an interdisciplinary understanding of health, drawing on both the social sciences and the natural sciences, and aims at promoting knowledge development and action conducive to health. This program meets the needs of Saskatchewan and Canada as health issues continue to dominate public policy choices. A key feature of this program is its emphasis on understanding indigenous health needs.
Graduates work as social workers, public policy analysts, health advocates, wellness and lifestyle advisors, life coaches and health researchers.
