Public health, psychology, social work, sport, geography, or youth development — UC Health is multi-disciplinary and incorporated into a variety of programmes.
Healthcare today is increasingly focused on population wellness, disease prevention, and delivering health services in the community. As a result, the health workforce has become more diverse and interdisciplinary, creating exciting new career opportunities.
Our range of qualifications provide a pathway to a number of careers including professional sports coaching, management and teaching (when combined with a second teaching subject and postgraduate qualification).
The Master of Health Sciences Professional Practice (Nursing) and Bachelor of Nursing joint initiative between the University of Canterbury and Ara gives the opportunity for students who already hold a degree relevant to health sciences to gain two further qualifications in just two years.
UC's Master of Counselling is the only postgraduate Counselling programme in the South Island and takes a solution-focused approach. Graduates working in professional practice will enhance and promote the positive growth, wellbeing, and mental health of individuals, families and groups.
Social Work degrees combine academic courses with intensive skills development and internship experience in the field.
The Centre provides assessments and interventions on a short-term basis for children and families/whānau not currently receiving support from other agencies.
