Health Promotion & Social Behavior

Mission & Objectives


The Health Promotion and Social Behaviour concentration offers modules that address social and cultural factors that influence the health of individuals and communities. The central themes of this area of this concentration are: 1) to identify health interventions that can reduce health problems such as poor nutrition and addictions, 2) to develop and manage health promotion programmes, and 3) to provide support for individuals and populations to lead healthy lives. By applying health behavioural theories with public health assessment methodologies, students will be trained to develop, implement and evaluate public health programmes and policies. Many of the students of this concentration come from nursing, rehabilitative sciences, psychology and education backgrounds. Many of our graduates work in community health promotion settings and non-governmental agencies.
