This program from Western Sydney University opens up opportunities for work in many growing areas of healthcare services, in both clinical and non-clinical roles. Students will build a comprehensive foundation of health science knowledge and pursue study in one or two of the following specialisations: Health Promotion, Health Services Management, Recreational Therapy, Public Health or Clinical Sciences. The University has developed an innovative and integrated suite of health science programs which share a number of first and second year units. This integration between the programs allows some options at the end of the first year for students to transfer between health science courses if they meet the criteria, with advanced standing for the units that they have completed. Note that transfer places to some courses may be very limited and competitive, and transferring may extend the duration of the degree. Most of the health science units have an online component, giving students even more flexibility. Online studies will help students develop independent learning and self-direction. The Public Health degree is offered as a fully online course in 2016.
