Health Education

  • Health Education
    UC Health Sciences students organised and carried out the All Right? Amble through Christchurch's Botanic gardens, promoting the five pillars of well-being in the family event.



This major prepares graduates with the knowledge, skills and confidence to work with individuals and groups to enhance well-being. They will develop specific health education and pedagogical knowledge that is applicable in a diverse range of settings. Experiential learning in a variety of contexts (eg, mental health, sexuality and nutrition) will allow students to recognise factors that influence health and to develop a wide range of strategies to address them. Students will engage in debate and critical reflection on a range of contemporary health issues. Through this engagement students will develop an understanding of ethical issues and principles, a respect for the autonomy and choice of both individuals and groups, and competency in collaborative and consultative ways of working.
