Health Science

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Health Science profile of our Science programs is a two (2) year, pre-university program that prepares students to pursue university studies in a broad range of fields relating to the health and/or biomedical sciences.

With labs built in 2013, students in this program have the opportunity to learn in state-of-the-art facilities with brand new equipment and technology. The program provides students with the foundations in mathematics and physics that are necessary to advance to higher education, while also providing them with an in-depth knowledge of chemistry and biology. In addition, we ensure that students are well equipped for higher education by training them in the fundamentals of health sciences with a focus on organic chemistry and multi-celled organisms.

UNIQUE BILINGUAL PROGRAM: DEC 200.FR

This program is well accommodated for Francophones, as well as bilingual students, who would like increased exposure to the study of science offered in the English language. However, in the Science DEC program, students have the option of doing their general education in French. This provides them with a solid foundation for future university studies in English while still allowing them to do their general education courses in French. Moreover, in conjunction with pedagogical developments in Quebec universities, students within this program can submit their homework and do their exams in the language of their choice.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

In addition to our state-of-the-art physics, biology, and chemistry labs, students in our Science program also have access to our 3D printing room, the opportunity to participate in national-level math and science competitions as well as the opportunity to join the TAV College Robotics Club.
