Bachelor of Public Health and Health Promotion / Bachelor of Commerce

Deakin University

This program provides students with a thorough understanding of the social and environmental factors that cause poor health as well as those factors that create and sustain good health. Students will examine how health is created or influenced in our society and the wide range of approaches for improving the population's health such as community engagement, program planning and evaluation, capacity building, research, policy development and health communication. These approaches reflect professional practice and are applied to a range of settings and population groups. Students will also gain a professional business qualification through studies in the complementary discipline of commerce. These studies incorporate aspects of business systems and processes, management, marketing, human resources, finance, economics, commercial law and business information systems, depending on the major sequence chosen in the commerce component of the degree.
