Honours Degree


Program Code: HM411

Campus: Lakeshore

Length: 8 semesters starting in September

Healthcare is one of the biggest employment sectors in Ontario. This program will prepare you for analyst, administrative or management positions in the health-care field or analyst positions in consulting and health policy. Employment opportunities can be found in numerous settings including:

• hospitals and public health
• medical offices
• community care organizations
• health-care consulting firms
• professional services firms

A combination of coursework taught by industry professionals and hands-on experience through a work placement provides graduates with a compelling mix of theoretical knowledge on the principles of business and the practical skills to apply those principles to the unique demands of the health sector.

Work Placement

The program requires that you complete 14 weeks/420 hours of paid work in the summer between your sixth and seventh semesters. This gives you the hands-on, real-world experience that employers value. Your placement will give you the opportunity to explore the field you’d like to work in when you graduate. We will work with employers and our industry partners to help you identify opportunities to pursue.
