What will I learn?

Highlights

  • Develop an understanding about social, economic and environmental factors that affect public health and how this can inform professional practice in human services.
  • Complete two separate degrees in 4 years full-time.
  • Opportunity to complete professional placements, both in Australia and overseas, to gain experience and industry contacts.

Why choose this course?

You will select elective units from key areas of human services and public health practice, including youth services, domestic violence, community nutrition, or general studies in psychology.

This course also offers opportunities for practical placement in local, regional, or overseas locations. These experiences allow you to broaden your skills for employment in a range of local and global environments.

An understanding of how social, cultural and economic factors can influence the health of individuals and communities is central to public health practice. Applying this knowledge in a human services role allows graduates to develop and deliver support programs that recognise a client’s individual circumstances and underlying barriers to improved health. You may work for government health and human services departments, non-government organisations, community and advocacy groups, and not-for-profit organisations.

Professional recognition

This course is accredited by the Australian Community Workers Association (ACWA) and graduates are eligible to apply for membership of the ACWA. In addition, graduates are eligible to apply for membership of the Public Health Association of Australia and the Australian Health Promotion Association.
