The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences currently offers 12 master's and doctoral programs focussed on improving human health and well-being and helping people get the most out of life.

Many of our professors are collaborating with organizations such as the World Health Organization, Public Health Agency of Canada, and the Canadian Cancer Society to identify health risks, and to advance knowledge, programs, and policies to improve quality of life and health across the lifecourse.

Others are working with social service agencies, national parks personnel, the World Tourism Organization and other organizations to optimize enhancement of our lives through leisure.

Whether upgrading your education with a course-based master's program, or embarking on a research-based master's or doctoral program, you can look forward to an inspiring, connected, relevant journey of discovery.

How to get started

After reviewing program possibilities and potential supervisors (for thesis-based programs) in your area of interest, consult the admission requirements and application process for your chosen program. For more information, contact a graduate studies representative here in Applied Health Sciences.
