Health is one of Australia's fastest growing employment sectors. Graduates who understand the nature of the health problems global communities face or would like to design effective healthcare approaches for an increasingly consumer-driven, ageing population are in high demand.
The Bachelor of Science (Health) provides a thorough grounding in health and health systems at the local, national and global level. You will graduate with the ability to navigate the complexity of health in different sociocultural, political and economic contexts, along with skills in critical thinking, complex problem solving, communication and empathy.
You will complete a major in Health with core units in areas such as health and society, introduction to healthcare and eHealth, ensuring you gain comprehensive knowledge of healthcare and its latest developments. As you progress through the health major you will be able to specialise in areas of interest (e.g. health, ethics and the law, international health or health promotion).
To complement your Health major you can also study a second major from across the university such as Marketing, Management, Design, Applied Medical Sciences, Education, Nutrition Science, Psychology, Hearing and Speech or Human Movement.
Bachelor of Advanced Studies
You can also undertake this course as a combined Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Advanced Studies (Health) . In this combined course you can complete a second major, combine studies from a range of disciplines, undertake advanced coursework, and get involved in cross-disciplinary community, professional, research or entrepreneurial project work. Upon graduating, you will be ready for a career in corporate health, government and policy, and not-for-profit organisations, among many others.
