Medical Anthropology provides an anthropological perspective on health and illness processes and the socio-cultural factors that shape the experience of illness, patterns of health and disease, and access to health care services. Medical anthropology uniquely studies both cross-cultural and biomedical systems of healing.
  • Honours Minor BA: a minimum of 30 credits
  • The Honours Minor in Medical Anthropology may be combined with any approved Honours BA program that offers a major/minor option in the Faculties of Environmental Studies (Bachelor of Environmental Studies – BES), Health, Liberal Arts and Professional Studies, Science, the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design, or the Lassonde School Engineering. For further details on requirements, refer to the listings for specific Honours programs that may be pursued jointly with other Faculties.
