Ecological Determinants of Health

Can be taken as: Domain

This Domain considers the interface between the environment and human well-being, with particular focus on the triad that ties human health to the environment through the elements of food and infectious agents. Each of these elements is influenced by planned and unplanned environmental disturbances. There are two streams available: Population and Cellular. Students in the Population concentration will gain a depth of understanding at an ecosystem level that looks at society, land, and population health. Students in the Cellular concentration will explore these interactions in more depth, at a physiological level.

Note: This domain is open only to students in the B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) Major Environment or B.Sc. Major Environment program. Students may also be eligible for an Honours program and they must satisfy the requirements set by their B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) or B.Sc. degree.
