Health Sciences - M2014

Are you passionate about health, but want to explore your options? Our Bachelor of Health Sciences combines a solid foundation in health with a flexible curriculum, so you can discover what areas of health most inspire you.

This degree provides you with a broad overview of health - from the Australian health care system, anatomy and physiology, research and evidence, to preventive strategies in public health. Your foundation units allow you to apply scientific approaches to the study and improvement of health, considering physiological, behavioural, developmental, social and environmental aspects of human health and disease. You’ll discover how to identify, investigate, analyse and assess health issues and learn from passionate teaching staff, with clinical, research and industry connections.

With our Bachelor of Health Sciences, you’ll not only have the opportunity to pursue your passion for health but have the flexibility to design your own degree. This means you can explore subjects that spark your curiosity and choose from a wide range of electives across the University. You could learn a language, or complement your health studies with units in business, communication or information technology, or focus on a particular area within the health sciences.
