General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Joanne Boucher 905-688-5550, extension 4228 Academic South 329 fahs.brocku.ca/chsc The Department of Community Health Sciences offers four-year Honours degrees leading to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Child Health, a Bachelor of Public Health (BPH), a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Health Sciences or Biomedical Sciences and a three-year BA (Pass) degree in Community Health. A Dental Hygiene or Pharmacy Technician diploma may be earned with the BA (Pass) Community Health through articulation agreements with other post-secondary institutions. The BA (Honours) in Child Health is designed for students wishing to pursue careers as an educator or health professional following post graduate study. The program provides students with a biological, psychological and sociological overview of the major determinants of health from birth through adolescence. The Bachelor of Public Health (Honours) focuses on individual, community and population health and wellness with emphasis on health promotion, health administration, health policy, and health programming and evaluation. Students are prepared for careers in a broad range of community and public health fields, and postgraduate study in health-related disciplines. The BSc (Honours) in Health Sciences prepares students for careers in health professions with a bio-science perspective. This pre health professional degree allows students to meet the requirements for post graduate programs in medicine and the allied health professions. The BSc (Honours) in Biomedical Sciences focuses on the molecular basis of human health. It draws on the expertise of faculty of Community Health Sciences in the medical aspects of human health and of faculty in Biological Sciences in theory, methods, and applications of molecular biology. This program will prepare students for careers in biomedical research, teaching, or professional programs in health sciences. The BA (Pass) in Community Health focuses on community health and wellness emphasizing health promotion and health assessment as well as program development and evaluation. This foundational degree provides a broad overview of societal trends and systems related to health issues and is a stepping stone for careers in health related areas.  
Brock/Colleges Articulation Agreements Go to top of document
Co-ordinated between the Department of Community Health Sciences and a related department at another post-secondary institution, articulation agreements offer students an opportunity to combine practical experience with theoretical knowledge, with courses taken at both Brock University and an Ontario college. Upon successful completion of both programs, students receive a BA (Pass) Community Health and a diploma from the corresponding college. Gaining both a degree and diploma would typically involve attending college after earning a university degree, or vice versa, however, the Brock articulation agreements combine practical and theoretical learning in a single integrated package that may be completed in four years.  
Dental Hygiene Go to top of document
Students participating in this articulation agreement earn a diploma in Dental Hygiene from Niagara College and a Bachelor of Arts (Pass) in Community Health from Brock University. Students admitted to Community Health at Brock University for first year admission may apply during the first year of study; applications are due to the Department of Community Health Sciences by March 1 during the first year at Brock and can be found with the Undergraduate Program Co-ordinator. All applicants are required to write the Health Occupations Aptitude Exam (HOAE) in order to be considered for entry into the Dental Hygiene program; after the application date, test information and dates will be communicated to the applicants. Testing must be completed by April 1 in order to remain eligible. Associated fees must be paid in full by the deadline (March 1) in order to have a completed application for consideration. Applicants will be notified by Niagara College regarding entry into the Dental Hygiene program. Students complete years two and three at Niagara College and return for year four at Brock University. Students completing the Dental Hygiene program at Niagara College, with a minimum 70 percent average, may apply for consideration to Brock University and complete 10.0 prescribed credits (two years) to earn a BA (Pass) Community Health. Applications are made via OUAC 105 Application to Community Health (BAH) and applicants must contact the Undergraduate Program Co-ordinator to receive an additional internal application and relevant information. Studies at both institutions are directed to help learners gain employment not only as a Dental Hygienist, but also in the field of Health Promotion and Education, and to prepare for many possible career choices in the dental and health-related fields.  
Pharmacy Technician Go to top of document
The Pharmacy Technician articulation agreement allows students to receive a Bachelor of Arts (Pass) degree in Community Health at Brock University and a Pharmacy Technician diploma at Lambton College. Years one and four are completed at Brock University, with students attending Lambton College for years two and three. Applications are due to the Department of Community Health Sciences by April 1 during the first year of study at Brock and can be found with the Undergraduate Program Co-ordinator. Studies at both institutions are directed to help learners gain employment not only as a Pharmacy Technician, but also in the field of Health Promotion and Education, and to prepare for many possible career choices in health-related fields.
