  • Public health investigates and applies medical and health knowledge at a global or community level, rather than at the individual level found in clinical medicine. It's flexible, it can be applied across countless clinical domains and can have huge impact.

    Our flagship Master of Public Health (MPH) degree provides graduates with the full range of quantitative, analytical and communication skills needed to work in and lead public health, locally and globally. Taught by Victoria's leading public health experts and with strong links to the Alfred Hospital, our MPH is highly regarded in industry, the public sector and academia.

    We focus on providing latest knowledge, practical research skills and nurturing your ability to problem-solve. This ensures our graduates are well regarded and set up for career success.

    We offer a diverse list of electives allowing students to tailor their learnings as their interest areas develop. Accelerated entry points, flexible online and in person learning options and an optional research project help students realise their potential and get the most from their experience.

    "It’s important to me to learn from true leaders, to make the most of my study opportunity. I was impressed with how strongly Monash ranked across numerous medical fields in research and education, and now I’ve graduated, I take pride in being a Monash alumna."

    "The thing that I have most enjoyed about my Monash MPH has been the interplay between my work and studies. I’m able to bring insights from my studies into my work and vice versa. This has not only benefited the richness of my learning but has also increased the value that I’m able to contribute through my work."
