The combined Bachelor of Health Science - Public Health/Bachelor of Management (B.H.Sc./B.Mgt.) degree program is a rarity in Canada that blends public health and management, and the Dhillon School of Business is the only one to offer this degree at an undergraduate level. The program combines public health theory and practice with organizational behaviour, information technology, accounting, marketing, management policy and human resources management.
Upon graduation, you will have the practical managerial skills and the theoretical public health knowledge needed for employment in a wide range of non-clinical public health roles in a variety of settings and agencies.
Applicants may be admitted to the B.H.Sc./B.Mgt. when they are admitted to the University. Enrolment in both the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Dhillon School of Business is limited and fulfillment of the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission. Students are not officially in the B.H.Sc./B.Mgt. Combined Degrees program until they have been admitted to both the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Dhillon School of Business.
In addition to the general admission requirements, all applicants to the B.H.Sc./B.Mgt. Combined Degrees program must satisfy the following Alberta high school courses or equivalents:
|Major||Additional Admission Requirement|
