This program encompasses a range of biomedical and health disciplines that underpin advances crucial to human health and wellbeing. These are complimented by a public health focus which draws out the relevance of the science disciplines to the health industry: health promotion, research, policy and administration. Links between each science discipline, public health and the health industry are further enhanced by a practicum experience within a health-related enterprise. Graduates will be well positioned to pursue careers in the health industry, with opportunities in health promotion, administration and delivery.


Students can choose to include either a Public Health Practicum or Research Practicum as part of the Master of Health Science. While the standard timeframe for completion of this degree is two years (full time), if students have previously completed an undergraduate degree in a cognate (related) area it may be possible to complete within 1.5 years. The course offers a focused, advanced learning experience that will enhance career choices. Students must complete all core units and specialisation core units. This degree also provides the flexibility to choose from a range of units to complement specific interests. Course structures for the master's degrees with the new 1.5 to 2 years' structure (72 to 96 points) are now available via the UWA Handbook. Visit handbooks.uwa.edu.au/courses for details.
