The Health Science & Human Services Pathway exposes students to careers in education, healthcare, and social services. Students are immersed in hands-on experiences that encompass everything from understanding the intricacies of healthcare systems to developing the empathetic and practical skills required in social service roles. Through theoretical learning and practical application, students will learn how they can make a profound impact on individuals and communities alike. Students can join one of three pathway strands: education & human services, health science, or hospitality.
