Bachelor of Health Sciences (Disability and Inclusion major)

I realised that there is a lot to still be done in the diversity sector in my home country in reference to accessibility of resources. This degree was a way to understand inclusive practices and how they affect the health sector.

Master of Disability and Inclusion

What Deakin is offering in the Disability and Inclusion program is really unique across the sector. I wanted to enrol in a program that centres and respects lived experience of people with disability and considers intersectionality as a core tenet of disability inclusion.

Master of Public Health

I chose public health because it broadly incorporates various specialties such as public health, health promotion and health economics. This widens my employability options.
