Study with us to extend your knowledge and skills, and propel your career in public health.
To guide students in developing their elective study program, with depth for career development and interests, electives are broadly organised into the key areas of expertise of:
Epidemiology and biostatistics; clinical research methods; health economics; disease/injury prevention and control and health promotion; health policy, planning and management; global health and human rights; occupational and environmental health; and capstone unit/research projects/case study.
The MPH course offers students the opportunity to integrate and extend their knowledge and skills gained in their MPH through a Capstone experience, as a Professional Practice Development unit. There is also the opportunity for students to undertake a research project or case study (consultation with the course research project coordinator is required prior to enrolment in research units).
The course structure and flexibility assists students to extend, integrate and apply their core knowledge and skills with depth in key areas of interest according to their background and career development interests, something that employers have identified as important, and to gain knowledge and skills in new areas across the broad domain of public health to equip them for future challenges.
