Why study this course

This program prepares students to be able to make a positive contribution to enhancing the health of communities. Health science is the study of the physical, psychological, social, and environmental dimensions of health. Students graduate with practical and theoretical knowledge and skills in communication, teamwork, critical thinking, innovation, and cross-cultural and international awareness.

Students can choose to undertake two eight-unit majors, or a major and minor, in these disciplines: Addiction Studies, Environmental Management, Health Promotion, Nutrition, Occupational Safety and Health. Alternatively, students can undertake one 16-unit major in Nutrition Bioscience or Environmental Health. A minor in Youth Work is also available.

Student review
the online courses are so user friendly and the lecturers tailor the delivery of material from the face to face classes to make it available on the student portal. I particularly love the adobe connect sessions/ video lectures where you can see the lecturers slides and ask questions in real time. I'm almost finished my degree and its been a fantastic experience with ECU

Started off well however some of the units are rather irrelevant and made a lot harder than they need to be.
