Health Sciences Major

Bachelor of Science

This bachelor of science (BSc) program incorporates basic science courses (biology, chemistry, molecular biology and statistics) with HSCI courses about health and disease. Building on a solid base of basic biomedical and applied health science, students will receive advanced training in pharmacology, toxicology, pathophysiology and epidemiology, as well as molecular biology and genetics.

Admission Requirements

Internal Transfer

Internal transfer allows students to transfer, within Simon Fraser University, from one faculty to another. Students can apply for internal transfer into the Bachelor of Science program in the Faculty of Health Sciences with a minimum CGPA of 2.5 and the following with a minimum grade of C:

  • HSCI 130
  • BISC 101 or BISC 102
  • one of HSCI 211, HSCI 212, HSCI 214, HSCI 216, and
  • MATH 100 or equivalent. Students with only BC Pre-Calculus 12 require a grade of B or satisfactory grade on Calculus Readiness Test.

Minimum Grades

Students enrolling in HSCI courses must have a grade of C- or better in prerequisite courses and in the program's required courses.

Program Requirements

For the bachelor of science (BSc) Health Sciences program, students complete 120 units, which includes:

  • at least 45 upper division units
  • at least 60 units that must be completed at Simon Fraser University
  • satisfaction of the writing, quantitative, and breadth requirements
  • an overall cumulative grade point average (CGPA) and upper division CGPA of at least 2.0

Life Sciences Concentration Lower Division Requirements

Students complete all of
