It focuses on population health, considering issues such as the socio-economic and behavioural factors affecting health and health provision.
It will provide an in depth understanding of the role governments play in determining health policy, how wealth systems function, and how the biological and social bases of ill-health exist in our communities.
Students in the first year of this programme are also able to apply for entry to our undergraduate clinical programmes in Medicine and Pharmacy.
This degree can lead to careers in non-clinical fields in healthcare. BHSc graduates are sought after for roles in the public, private and charitable sectors. You may apply for entry into our faculty's Medicine, Nursing or Pharmacy programmes at the end of the first year. Alternatively, you could further your graduate study in public health, health sciences or health management.
Taking a conjoint degree in Arts, Commerce, Nursing, Law or Science enhances your career options. We advise that the University of Auckland is not involved in the employment of graduates and can make no guarantee of post-qualification registration or employment in New Zealand or any other country.
