The Bachelor of Arts (Population) aims to train students in skills to obtain, review and analyse health information, to plan and manage a health project and to improve the health of populations. The program is designed to do two main things. Firstly, students will learn the basics of the health sector and develop an understanding of the problems involving health, illness, treatment and welfare. Secondly, useful skills are developed that can be used in a variety of jobs. Skills such as analysing information, researching with people, developing policy, project management and writing for a range of purposes, such as report writing and writing for the media. This means that when you graduate, there are many possibilities with regard to jobs, especially if you take population health in conjunction with another specialty area, such as psychology, economics or politics.
