What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Health Sciences is a three-year program that provides a comprehensive overview of health and health care, including biomedicine, healthcare ethics, public health, psychology and nutrition. Choose to major in Health Promotion, Nutrition, or Public Health. You'll study a range of specialised courses during your second and third year, and will also undertake health and management-related electives. Receive a solid foundation that will allow you to move into a clinical or non-clinical career. This is an excellent pathway into postgraduate health programs, including medicine. Get hands-on experience, integrate your knowledge and develop key professional skills in a busy health setting as you undertake supervised work experience in your final year.

Health Promotion

Learn how health services and programs are designed and delivered to promote positive community health and prevent disease and disability. You will learn how to work with communities to promote health and understand the role of health services, health policy and healthcare decision making, while examining the role of human behaviour in the incidence, prevention and progression of illness.
