The Faculty of Science, Health, and Human Services has been organized to promote stronger links between programs having common educational issues in the general health and human services fields, and to foster a closer relationship with the scientific fields that provide much of the basic knowledge for these areas.
The variety of courses and programs within the Faculty reflect a balance of academic offerings and competency- based training. These provide avenues for students to pursue further education at graduate levels and/or to move directly into the workplace.
Our programs attempt to reflect and understand the changes that we are undergoing, both as individuals and as a society, many of which are driven by scientific or technological advances in the natural, agricultural, or health science fields. Others are a result of the changing characteristics of our society.
Some of our programs prepare students to nurture and teach our youth in their most formative years. Others train them to provide care to our aging citizens, and others take a broader view, encouraging students to strive to understand the human mind. Cooperative Education and/or work experience through practicums are offered in some programs. Students interested in any of the programs in this division are encouraged to contact the appropriate department head or director or the Deans office.
The Faculty of Science, Health, & Human Services offers the following programs:
Associate of Science degree
Bachelor of Science degree
Kinesiology and Physical Education
Early Childhood Education/Child and Youth Care
Social Work/Human Services
University transfer courses
For information on general science, see General Studies in the Introduction and General Information section, or Science programs under the Science division in this Faculty.
The General Studies category is designed for students wishing to take courses for their own interest or to help them in choosing a direction of study. As a General Studies student, you may take arts, science, and/or applied courses. General Studies is not a true program; it has no structured group of courses. Students can apply later for any of the associate, diploma, or degree options at UCFV. A General Studies degree is offered at UCFV (see Bachelor of General Studies section). Credit is given for courses recognized by your chosen option. University-level courses can be transferred to another institution. For more details, see Guidelines for transfer to other universities and colleges in the Introduction and General Information section.
