Work to assess, manage and prevent injury and disease within the workplace and in the broader community.

This double degree course is designed to develop your expertise in both health promotion and occupational health and safety. As a graduate, you may choose to work within either discipline over your career, however, due to the course’s unique integration of the two, you may pursue a career that combines both.

Your first year is interprofessional and taken with other health sciences students. In the following years, you will specialise in the areas of health promotion and health and safety. You will learn how to promote health by developing people’s skills and knowledge, strengthening the ability of people to plan and undertake action to achieve better health, creating healthy environments and changing policies and laws to support healthy choices.

The occupational health and safety component will equip you with skills to contribute proactively to risk management and assessment, and the prevention of injuries and disease in the workplace.

You will participate in an on-campus health promotion campaign, undertake a 100-hour  professional placement in workplace health promotion, and complete 200 hours of placements in health and safety. Fieldwork visits will also give you the chance to see health and safety in action.

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
