As a Bachelor of Health Sciences graduate, you can be confident you will acquire a solid grounding in multiple fields of health sciences, and be prepared for a successful career in the fastest-growing employment sector in Australia.

Become a specialist in two major areas, and choose elective units to broaden your skillset further. Depending on your first two selections, you can also consider a third major area of study. Combining your interests with multiple majors can increase your competitiveness for a variety of health roles and can open the door to further study. Workplace learning opportunities are also on offer, giving you the chance to apply your knowledge in a real-world context while building your own professional networks in the health sector.
