The Bachelor of Health Science (Public Health) is a great choice for those interested in pursuing a non-clinical health career, shaping the health and wellbeing of our society and the environments in which we live, work and play. Along with addressing determinants of poor health, students cultivate skills to promote health and wellbeing in healthy populations to maintain health over the lifespan. Students benefit from a curriculum aligned to the Australian Public Health Competency Framework and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Curriculum Framework. This provides them with transferable skills that can be applied across the growing health industry at all levels of government as well as in a variety of organisations such as the Royal Society for the Blind, the Heart Foundation, and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).
