Program Overview

Humber’s Bachelor of Health Sciences – Workplace Health and Wellness degree program is a unique honours degree program, the first of its kind in Canada. You will explore various industry-specific areas including the most current developments in evidence-based interprofessional practice.

This program is multi-disciplinary in nature, drawing from the fields of leadership; mental, physical, and psychological health; business and communication; and knowledge translation. All combined, students acquire the competencies to develop proactive, evidence-based workplace health and wellness programs and health promotion programs. You will develop the skills to promote employee health, workplace culture, employee engagement and retention.

Principles of equity, wellness coaching, diversity, ethical and legal practices, and knowledge translation are the foundation of your learning. A team approach to learning collaboratively is key and is emphasized in the classroom. 

Learning Outcomes

  • Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:
  • Evaluate determinants of workplace health and wellness in order to make evidence-informed decisions, which are supported by theoretical and practical knowledge of key health and wellness concepts.
  • Employ appropriate methodologies for research, dissemination of information, program planning, implementation and renewal, problem-solving, interprofessional education and collaboration and project management.
  • Apply ethical, evidence-informed strategies to develop and sustain inclusionary proactive and reactive practices, which support continuous improvements in workplace health and wellness.
  • Communicate health and wellness messages effectively in a variety of traditional and innovative media modalities.
  • Develop habits of mind, which demonstrate awareness of the scope and limits of professional practice.
  • Demonstrate responsible leadership, accountability and effective collaboration, modeling the embodiment of personal and workplace health and wellness principles.

Work Placement
You will participate in one mandatory paid or unpaid work placement to gain 14 weeks of full-time professional work experience during the summer months between 3rd and 4th year. The placement will occur in diverse settings such as for-profit or not-for-profit enterprises, health and wellness consulting firms, governmental or educational institutions, or other health and wellness environments.

The experience will enhance the theoretical learning in the program, giving you hands-on skills. Work placement experiences might include successfully developing, evaluating and implementing a workplace health and wellness initiative; functioning as a member of a health and promotion team; working at a public health organization in knowledge translation; working in insurance companies and with workplace insurance claims; and health promotion within a long-term care facility.
