BH-HSC Honours year Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

The purpose of this new Honours degree is to provide students with a pathway from their undergraduate studies in Health Sciences into a more intensive, specialised program related to their major. It also provides potential candidates with the foundation for doctoral training in their chosen field.

The Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) program includes the following specialisations: Biomedical Science, Clinical Technologies, Psychophysiology, Nutrition, Psychology and Forensic Science, Health Promotion and Neuroscience.

The program is designed to equip students with the necessary theory and skills advantageous for employment and research training in the Health Sciences. Students will gain experience in project management, research skills, writing for research publication, oral seminar presentation and working in teams.

Please note that this Honours program does not have accreditation with the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council and does not allow students to practice as a professional psychologist. Students who wish to become a professional psychologist should complete the Bachelor of Psychological Sciences (Honours).
