Health Sciences

A degree in Health Science prepares you for a career in a wide range of health-related fields. Many of these jobs are non-clinical, meaning that they focus instead on social, economic and behavioural factors that affect health and health services. It looks at health policy and how current health systems function, as well as biological and social origins of ill health. 

Health Sciences, covers a wide range of fields from Medicine to Dentistry, Counselling, Health Promotion and Psychology. A Bachelor of Health Science is structured slightly different from other degrees, where you can choose to take a standalone Health Science degree, specialise in one specific subject, or take a Clinical Health Science degree, which would see you studying for a career such as Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Podiatry or Midwifery. Whichever path you choose, you can be sure, you will be choosing a degree that is not only well sought after, but makes a difference to the lives of New Zealanders.
