Bachelor of Public Health Science
After excelling in Health and Human Development during Year 12, Estefania Quintero realised she wanted to study public health. By doing her own research, talking to our course representatives and visiting us on Open Day, Estefania "felt comfortable on campus and confident that Monash was going to offer the best career path in public health."
Having just completed the first year of a Bachelor of Public Health Science, Estefania has enjoyed exploring a broad range of subjects, giving her a sense of what areas she is most interested in, that could potentially lead to certain career paths within the public health field. She’s now looking forward to learning more about health promotion and global health, and the opportunity to go on placement to experience "what a career in public health looks like in the real world." Outside of her studies, Estefania is also involved in life at our Caulfield Campus, as the social media manager for the Monash Health Science Society.
Looking to the future, Estefania hopes to work for World Vision, the World Health Organisation (WHO) or the United Nations, combining her interests in health promotion and global health with helping people. She believes her studies will equip her with “the skills and knowledge required to make a difference in the lives of those who need it the most.”
Estefania reflects “whether it is through research, creating health policy and programs or promoting health among communities, a Bachelor in Public Health Science at Monash will lead you towards a career path in which you can improve people’s health and therefore their lives, and I think that is worth pursuing.”
