Faculty of Applied Health Sciences / Faculty of Health
Programs: Health Studies, Kinesiology, Public Health, Recreation and Leisure Studies, Recreation and Sport Business, Therapeutic Recreation, Tourism Development
- 519-888-4567, ext. 46220
As of January 2021, Applied Health Sciences became the Faculty of Health. This new name more clearly reflects the Faculty's teaching, research, and commitment to creating a healthier world. Because of the timing of this change, you might see both faculty names over the next several months. Our major and programs are still the same, and the change won’t have any impact on your application.
