What will I learn?

Study sexual and reproductive health at Sydney and develop a nuanced understanding of the challenges of sexual and reproductive health in Australia and internationally.

100% online course delivery

In this course there are four specialisations on offer. If you choose a public health or a generalist 'no specialty' pathway all units of study will be completely online.

If you choose HIV and STIs or Pyschosexual therapy and reproductive health and fertility, these specialisations are also mostly online, however they do require a 2 week intensive face-to-face session on campus.

Both options are extremely flexible and will allow you to tailor your study schedule around your lifestyle.
