Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Articulation: Pre-Health Certification from Mohawk College

The Mohawk/Laurier Pre-Health Articulation Agreement aims to grant admission to those students who graduate from Mohawk College’s Pre-Health Certificate into Laurier’s Bachelor of Arts and Science (BASc) in Community Health at our Brantford campus. The articulation allows for Pre-Health students graduating with an overall 75% average and a 75% in the math courses (which includes two courses: MATH10008: Pre-Health Math 1 and MATH10009: Pre-Health Math 2) will gain admission to the BASc.

In addition, students will be granted 2.5 transfer credits towards the BASc program.

There are several concentrations and program journeys you can follow as a student enrolled in our Community Health program, so please speak directly with Admissions and Academic Advising to find out which options and courses best suit your interests and career goals.
