Health, Wellness and Sport in Society

The Certificate in Health, Wellness and Sport in Society (CHWSS) is an interdisciplinary certificate administered by the Faculty of Arts in collaboration with the Centre for the Study of Sport and Health.  

The Certificate is designed for students who wish to improve their knowledge of the social study of health, wellness and sport in their social context.

The Certificate encompasses a set of questions that engage the social, cultural, political and moral aspects of health, wellness and sport. It will be attractive to students from all three faculties.

As the Certificate draws on courses from many programs within Arts, it can easily be completed by students majoring or minoring in these disciplines, such as Anthropology, Atlantic Canada Studies, History, Religion, or Psychology, to name just a few.
