The Master of Health Sciences (MHealSc) degree allows study at a postgraduate level across a range of health disciplines, and research experience (thesis, dissertation or project) in the student's area of specialisation. This course is also available through Distance Learning.

Normally before embarking upon study within the Master of Health Sciences programme, students would first complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Health Sciences (PGCertHealSc) and/or a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Sciences (PGDipHealSc). Students are normally required to obtain a B average over their Postgraduate Diploma in order to be admitted to Masters Study.

The Master of Health Sciences (MHealSc) comprises 120 points. This can be a thesis worth the entire 120 points, a 60 point dissertation and further papers to the value of 60 points, or 30 point research project and 90 points of further papers. A 30 point research methods paper is a requirement for the Master of Health Sciences. It can be taken as an "endorsed" option.

Programmes are taught through the Dunedin School of Medicine and are designed to offer training in occupational health and safety for health science and other graduates who may wish to pursue a career in health and safety and for those who may be working in the field already.

The programme covers hazard identification, risk assessment, hazard management (including legislation), occupational diseases, rehabilitation, and occupational hygiene, toxicology, and research methods.
