Course details


Study health sciences with us and we’ll help you develop the skills to meet the changing needs of global healthcare. AUT is New Zealand’s largest and most diverse health education provider.

Our population is growing and we’re living longer, increasing the need for dedicated and inspirational healthcare graduates. AUT's health sciences degree is developed with input from district health boards and leading health organisations. You can specialise in a specific health discipline or become a health professional in a non-clinical role.

You learn from staff who are leaders in their field and have a genuine desire to see you succeed. This means you’ll be well prepared for your career in the health sector, no matter where you go.

Study the Bachelor of Health Science in Public and Environmental Health, and prepare yourself for a career where you can really make a difference.

Considerable change in our society means we need to have flexible, intersectoral and problem-solving approaches to a wide range of health issues and contexts as we move further into the digital age.
Our Public and Environmental Health major is committed to human rights, health equity and social justice, Te Tiriti o Waitangi and te whare tapa whā – the four cornerstones of physical, spiritual, mental, and family environments, and to the Sustainable Development Goals, which advocate for intersectoral, holistic actions to enhance human and planetary health.

Key features:

  • Complete a double major with Psychology within 3 years

Career opportunities:

Our graduates work in the public and private sectors; they are self-employed, advising and designing for sustainability, urban development, equity programmes, Māori and Pacific health.

They are team leaders, project designers and analysts, and increasingly they will work in the digital space, helping to create eHealth apps, serious games, and play a crucial role in social innovation and enterprise initiatives.
