The Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) degre  at the University of Technology Sydney places health science research within the professional, philosophical, historical, social, cultural and political contexts of health. 

The honours program is regarded as a research apprenticeship and requires an extensive commitment from students. It is an opportunity to produce a substantial piece of work, conduct research and/or explore research data in an area of interest at much more depth and more independently than has been possible in previous undergraduate studies. 

Course aims 

The purpose of the course is to enable health science graduates to conduct research relevant to a health area in any of its dimensions. 

It aims to develop students' skills in using research designs and methodologies, and to reinforce their understanding of the crucial role of research in the evolution of heath. Students also develop academic writing skills to produce a dissertation.


Career options include positions in health promotion, advocacy, health education, e-health, health data and information management systems, planning and policy, project management and evaluation, community development, research and consultancy across both public and private health sectors, physiotherapy (pathway) and pharmacy (pathway).
