The University of Waikato: Bachelor of Health

The Bachelor of Health (BHealth) offers students who are passionate about health and wellbeing a multidisciplinary programme of study that will help them to become innovative leaders who can contribute to change in systems and practices to support equitable outcomes for individuals and their communities.

This qualification has been specifically developed to address the growing demand for a workforce that can contribute across the health sector as this industry diversifies into roles with local governments, iwi, indigenous populations, community groups, private enterprise, and individuals and families.

The BHealth is underpinned by the concept of hauora in practice and incorporates Biomedical Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physiology); Epidemiology; Bioethics; Health Communication and Community Approaches; Māori, Pacific and Indigenous perspectives and practice; Psychology, Sociology, Policy; and Statistics, all of which allows students to explore the diverse aspects of health and wellbeing in applied and theoretical settings.
