Health Science - 3971
Bachelor degree (honours) - 1 year
This course allows graduates of the Bachelor of Health Science (3882) to undertake an honours year of study. Graduates from other disciplines can also apply for entry into the degree, assuming equivalence of studies.
Supervision of honours projects will be primarily provided by staff from the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, although opportunity exists for students to identify a project and co-supervisor with Monash partner organisations such as the Burnet Institute, the Baker-IDI (Heart and Diabetes Institute), and others.
In keeping with the degree's focus on health in a global context and the breadth of expertise in the School of Public Health and Preventative Medicine (SPHPM) and its partner organisations, it is expected that a range of local, national, and internationally focussed honours projects will be available for students.
Graduating students can find future careers in public health, and across health and social care systems.
