The Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Media and Communication will equip students with a comprehensive set of skills, knowledge and attributes to effectively promote health messages, products and innovations to a wide range of audiences.
You'll explore Australian and international health challenges and examine the physical, psychological and social aspects of health in a variety of settings.
You'll also gain knowledge about how the media is evolving through an examination of issues such as diversity, the influence of social networking, data, ownership and privacy, automated media and the digital economy.
Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. In this double degree, you’ll work on industry-linked projects relevant to your major areas of study. For example, in the Health Sciences Project (HEA30001), you'll work on a project which addresses a current industry challenge. And in units Digital Marketing Project 1 and 2 (DIG30001 and DIG30002) you'll work in teams on a significant digital advertising or marketing project.
Selected major: Nutrition
If ‘dietitian’ or ‘nutritionist’ are on your career menu, add nutrition to your degree and graduate as a nutritionist or continue to our Master of Dietetics.
A nutritionist can implement programs and advocate for change within the food industry across advertising, research and product development; a dietitian creates meal plans for individual health needs and can work in clinical practice across sport and fitness, public health, aged care, product marketing, food sustainability or research.
Learn about contemporary lifestyle-diseases, food security and sustainability. Our hands-on, lab-based learning approach also takes you through metabolic and biochemical functions, biological, psychological and cultural factors impacting our food choices, the role of nutrition across lifespans and digital health.
Past students have completed industry experiences with tech companies and volunteered for Richmond Football Club.
