Interdisciplinary Health Studies

Offering a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, interdisciplinary health studies is part of health sciences at AUT.

Our programmes bring together students and academic staff from different disciplines. Our aim is to connect and integrate the disciplines’ principles and approaches to create solutions faster and more effectively. This approach helps students work collaboratively with other professionals when they enter the workforce.
