Bachelor of Health Science
Griffith University - Gold Coast

Course outline

This degree is an ideal introduction into the health sector. If you’re interested in health and medical sciences, but not sure which area you want to specialise in, the Bachelor of Health Science is one of the most flexible and innovative programs of study in the future of health. It is grounded in chemistry, cell biology, anatomy, physiology, genetics and microbiology. With a wide range of electives including nutrition, climate change and toxicology and majors including environmental health, environmental toxicology, information technology and communication and media, this degree enables you to design a program of study that suits your interest and aims, whether that is launching your career or further postgraduate study. It looks at health through a combination of disciplines to explore how different areas of human biology and environmental factors relate to health and disease. Health care and social assistance is Australia’s largest employment industry, reflecting a need for more trained health scientists.
