Health Science Course Petition

To: Dean W. James Weese, Associate Deans, and The Faculty of Health Sciences

It has come to our attention that the number of senior-level Health Science courses offered at the University of Western Ontario has drastically decreased for the year of 2014/2015. Due to this change, many of the current students enrolled in the School of Health Studies are experiencing difficulty in being able to select their required/ desired courses. Popular courses including HS3025, 3071, 4351, and along with several others, are no longer available to the students in the faculty. The cancelling of some courses is understandable; however, it leaves for limited and competitive enrollment in the courses that are still be offered. To date, there have been no accommodations for the recent cutbacks that have been made, which has left many students in the faculty concerned about whether or not they will be able to fulfill their graduation requirements. In addition, senior students would prefer to be able to take courses that are of interest to them, and relevant to the professional field they will soon be pursuing or entering. This cannot be done with such drastic limitations to our course selection.

To address this issue, the Health Science student body would like to request the following:

- An increase in class sizes, especially the more popular senior Health Science courses such as HS3052, 3050, and 4490 by at least 50% to accommodate for the recent cancellations

- Offer more than one section for popular Health Science courses to accommodate students who may be trying to fulfill module requirements

-An increase in the number of senior-level courses to help students fulfill graduation and graduate school requirements

Lastly, we would like to thank you for your time and consideration. We hope to hear back from you soon. Any questions and inquiries can be made at
