The three-year Bachelor of Health Sciences degree is designed for those who want to work in health in the areas of public health, Māori health, Pacific health, in roles such as case managers or care co-ordinators in the healthcare system. This degree addresses the growing need for public health approaches as we face important health challenges such as an ageing population, increases in chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus, limited health resources, and environmental change and its effects on health. The focus of this degree is providing students with the skills to work with patients and communities to promote health, access health-related information, and ensure patients are accessing and receiving the most appropriate care for their conditions.
