Course Map

Course Map for Health Management pathway
A course map of the Health Management pathway. Extended description found below.
  • There are two journeys through this pathway starting in level I, with supplementary courses along the way.
  • Journey one begins with ECON 1B03 in level I, which leads to ECON 2Z03 in level II, which leads to ECON 3Z03 in level III.
  • Journey two begins with PSYCH 1X03 in level I, which leads to PSYCH 2C03 in level II, which leads to PSYCH 3CB3 in level III.
  • The following can be taken as independent courses in level I: INNOVATE 1X03, INNOVATE 1Z03 and COMM 1BA3.
  • The following can be taken as independent courses in level II: ECON 2CC3, PHILOS 2N03 and PHILOS 2YY3.
  • The following can be taken as independent courses in level III: INNOVATE 3X03, HTHSCI 3QA3, SUSTAIN 3S03 and HUMAN 3LM3. The latter two courses satisfy the Experiential requirement for the Life Sciences Program.
  • Finally, HTHSCI 4ID3 can be taken as an independent course in level IV.
