Health Promotion uses a multidisciplinary approach to understanding hauora as practice, and to examine approaches that contribute to a health system which can revitalise the mana of our communities by promoting health and reducing health inequities. Health Promotion embraces integrative knowledge of theories and analytical approaches (across psychology, health communication, sociology, epidemiology, and Māori and indigenous studies) to understand, critique and design health initiatives, policies, practices, interventions and their outcomes.

Health Promotion is available as a first major for the Bachelor of Health (BHealth). Health Promotion may also be included as a second major or minor in other undergraduate degrees, subject to approval of the Division in which the student is enrolled.
