Why study Health Promotion?

Learn how health services and programs are designed and delivered to promote positive community health and prevent disease and disability. You will learn how to work with communities to promote health and understand the role of health services, health policy and healthcare decision making, while examining the role of human behaviour in the incidence, prevention and progression of illness. During the degree you will complete foundation studies in the health sciences and learn how to apply this knowledge to health promotion and health behaviours, physical activity, nutrition and the planning of health services. You will gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of these issues, the skills to analyse these situations and develop programs to address them. You will apply this knowledge in your third year, where you will spend 90 hours on placement in non-clinical health-related organisations around metropolitan and rural Australia.
