The Bachelor of Health Sciences is a three-year degree for those who want to work in health in the areas of public health, Maori health, Pacific health, in roles such as case managers or care co-ordinators in the healthcare system.

There is an increasing need for public health approaches as we face important health challenges such as an ageing population, increases in chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus, limited health resources, and environmental change and its effects on health.

Graduates of the BHealSc majoring in public health will have the skills to work in a range of areas in the wider health sector, including government and non-government organisations.

The DPH is designed to develop public health skills at the postgraduate level. Candidates are required to hold a degree or to have appropriate professional qualifications and experience.

This programme is taught as an internal (on campus) programme in the University's three medical schools which are situated in Christchurch, Dunedin and Wellington. It consists of eight 15-point papers, four of which are compulsory and four others selected from sixteen options.

Candidates for the degree of MPH will have completed the DPH, or an equivalent qualification, at an acceptable level of attainment. The course of study will consist of either a thesis, or four DPH papers (not already completed) plus a dissertation.
