O que eu aprenderei?

The Bachelor of Applied Public Health provides students with the knowledge and skills to contribute to a healthier Australian society. Public Health is about preventing illness in populations and developing programs and practices that promote better health in individuals and communities. Public Health practitioners must understand both recent developments in scientific research and the ways in which this research can influence government policy. This degree is ideal for students who are enthusiastic about making a difference to the health of people through communication and leadership, and learning about the impact of individual lifestyle choices and intergenerational effects on health.

The Bachelor of Business Administration is a general business degree without specialisation in a particular subject area. The course is structured around 8 core units which are common to other undergraduate business courses and a further 4 units that will build your business knowledge in areas such as human resource management, marketing and management.

Combining the Bachelor of Applied Public Health with the Bachelor of Business Administration will enable graduates to utilise their knowledge and skill in industry, the public service or in small business enterprises.
