Why study this course

The Bachelor of Health Science is a flexible and innovative degree that equips graduates with qualifications to help make a difference across diverse settings of health care provision. The course is characterised by a strong emphasis on the social model of health, which can be combined with science content such as pharmacology or data analytics and information management. Students develop knowledge within a framework that can be tailored to suit their interests and needs. Some students may focus on learning how to use and interpret data to drive innovation and improvement in health systems. Alternatively, students may develop their knowledge of global health and international health priorities in order to contribute to overseas health initiatives and aid organisations. Other students may elect to focus on pharmacology, which can transition them to a degree in pharmacy and a career as a community, clinical or industrial pharmacist. Students who complete this course with the required electives and grade point average also meet current entry criteria for the Master of Physiotherapy.
