How to Apply

From Secondary School

  • At Queen's University, admission from Secondary School to all Arts & Science programs, including a Bachelor of Arts in Health Studies, is handled through Admissions, Office of the University Registrar.
  • Students are expected to take HLTH 101/3.0 (Social Determinants of Health), HLTH 102/3.0 (Physical Determinants of Health) and PSYC 100/6.0 (Principles of Psychology) in their first year.

NOTES:

  • It is always an excellent strategy to take a first-year Concentration Core course in an alternate degree program. Specific program requirements are listed in the Arts & Science Calendar .
  • In particular, if there is any possibility that you may want (or need) to change your Arts & Science degree program in second year, think ahead & be prepared by having taken the first-year required course(s) in the alternate program.
  • Students are also encouraged to take courses from a breadth of disciplines in Arts & Science. Even if you're certain that you do not want to take a concentration in another field that interests you, do consider taking an introductory course in it.
  • Prospective students are also advised to check the UG News website to see the back issues of newsletters sent out weekly. These issues are "a window" into undergraduate student life within the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies.

From Bader International Study Centre

Students who are not on campus in first year will not be able to take HLTH 101, the required first-year course for access to a Health Studies Degree Program. A BISC student must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 to be eligible for a HLTH degree plan for their second year of university studies.  Those students who are accepted, will be expected to do both their first- and second-year HLTH core courses concurrently, in particular HLTH 101 and HLTH 205.

STEPS:

  • Review the HLTH program requirements (see HLTH - Tracking your Progress website).Students are also encouraged to take courses from a breadth of disciplines in Arts & Science. Even if you're certain that you do not want to take a concentration in another field that interests you, do consider taking an introductory course in it.

  • Read the HLTH Course Summaries posted on-line to ensure that you understand the content, knowledge and  skills taught in HLTH courses.

INFORMATION SESSIONS FOR PROSPECTIVE HLTH STUDENTS:

THUR APR 3, 2014
KINES 101 (28 DIVISION STREET)
5:30 P.M.

  • First-year students currently registered as “ASC1” who want to do a Bachelor degree in Health Studies must participate in the Plan Selection Process through the Student Centre in SOLUS in May (after final grades are posted on SOLUS). Details on this process are posted on the Arts & Science Plan Selection for First-Year Students website.
  • Students who want to select a HLTH program should have taken all of HLTH 101/3.0, HLTH 102/3.0 and PSYC 100/6.0 in first year.
  • However, students who did not take either HLTH 102/3.0 (Physical Determinants of Health) and/or PSYC 100/6.0 (Principles of Psychology) may request a HLTH program but will be expected to get caught up by taking the missing course(s) in second year.

Arts & Science students will be accepted into a Health Studies program based on their performance in HLTH 101/3.0 (Social Determinants of Health) and their Cumulative GPA as stated below.

HLTH-M-BAH (Major in Health Studies)

Automatic
Acceptance:

HLTH-G-BA and HLTH-Y (General and Minor in Health Studies)

Automatic

NOTES:

  • There are normally 75 available places in second year for the HLTH-M-BAH (major) or HLTH-A-BAH (medial) programs and 50 available places in the HLTH-G-BA and HLTH-Y (general and minor) programs.
  • All HLTH programs require you to take certain core courses in sequence which is why it is critical for students to have taken HLTH 101/3.0 (Social Determinants of Health) in first year.  For example, in the HLTH-M-BAH (major) program, the following courses "build" on each other (act as prerequisites): HLTH 101/3.0 for HLTH 205/3.0 for HLTH 315/3.0 for HLTH 415/6.0.
  • HLTH 101/3.0 is only offered in the Fall Term.
