Course description

This flexible course provides students with the opportunity to develop a broad understanding of the field of health sciences while pursuing areas of interest within the human biosciences, occupational health or public health domains.

In first year, students will undertake an interdisciplinary common year in which students enrol in subjects with peers across health sciences courses. The focus is on basic human biosciences and factors influencing health and on developing an understanding of the roles of health professionals in the health and welfare sectors. Public health subjects cover the fields of disability and rehabilitation and health promotion. Students are required to complete the core subjects listed below in the first-year structure, plus two 15cp electives, from any discipline in the University, including health sciences. Any prerequisites must be satisfied.

Students intending to undertake this major, to further their studies in one of the graduate entry masters (GEM) programs, are encouraged to select one or more of the following subjects as electives. Enrolment in any of these subjects requires the subject coordinator's approval and numbers are subject to quotas.

  • HBS3NPM – relevant for the Master of Clinical Prosthetics and Orthotic, Master of Podiatric Practice and Master of Physiotherapy Practice GEM programs
  • HBS3HAC – relevant for the Master of Physiotherapy Practice GEM program
  • HBS3PCY – relevant for the Master of Podiatric Practice GEM program
  • BCH2IBM, BCH2MBC – relevant for the Master of Dietetic Practice GEM program (Please note: students must complete the following prerequisite subjects as first year electives to enable enrolment into second year Biochemistry: CHE1APL and one of CHE1GEN or CHE1CHF )
  • MIC2MMP – relevant for the Master of Podiatric Practice GEM program

The degree may be awarded as a pass degree, or if the student is eligible, as a degree with honours. To qualify for the Honours program, students will normally have completed the requirements for the pass degree and achieved academic results of a high standard.  For further information, please refer to the Handbook entry regarding the Bachelor of Health Sciences Honours program.

Graduates may apply to continue their studies at a postgraduate level in areas such as community health, ergonomics, gerontology, health promotion, human biosciences, public health and rehabilitation.
