Health and Sport Sciences Courses

Advance human health

As the worlds of medicine and science continue to advance, the need for well-trained healthcare professionals grows.

Western’s health science programs in Public Health, Health Promotion, Health Services Management,Recreational Therapy, Clinical Sciences, Health and Physical Education, Sport and Exercise Science and Sport Development equip you for the important work of advancing human health.

You can combine Health Promotion with Public Health or Health Services Management. Clinical Sciences prepares you for post graduate clinical health studies. Western offers the only Recreational Therapy course in Australia.

We also offer degrees in Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Podiatric Medicine, Paramedicine, Speech Pathology, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. You’ll learn to solve complex problems by working across disciplines. And our close ties with community and industry mean plenty of hands-on experience, too.

With a Bachelor of Health Science (HPE) - Pathway to Teaching (Secondary), you can explore challenging areas of personal development, like youth health issues, sexuality, drugs, psychology and risk-taking behaviours. Study general health science, like human biology, health systems, health promotion and research. When you graduate, you can go on to a Master of Teaching, and a career as an inspiring HPE teacher.
