MtA to introduce Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Interdisciplinary Health Studies

October 13, 2021
Mount Allison University has announced that it is introducing a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Interdisciplinary Health Studies. Students in the program will learn to use multiple critical lenses to examine health as they prepare for careers in health care, policy work, advocacy, and government. “Individuals … need to understand the social, cultural, economic, and political contexts in which our conception of health is formed,” said MtA President Dr Jean-Paul Boudreau. “The new Bachelor of Arts and Science in Health Studies will use an interdisciplinary approach, one Mount Allison is already well-known for, to respond to important needs in a rapidly changing area.” The program is anticipated to start in Fall 2022 with space for 40-50 students.
