ماذا سوف أتعلم؟

As a public health practitioner, you have the potential to truly make a difference to the world around you. From vaccines that prevent disease, laws that reduce the impacts of tobacco and drug use and prenatal services for babies and parents – the impact of public health is far reaching.

The teaching and learning activities and assessments in your degree have been designed to emulate activities public health practitioners are required to perform in their jobs on a regular basis. Your assessments will contribute to an industry-standard portfolio of work that you can present to future employers.

You’ll be taught by passionate academics and researchers who have decades of experience in public health. We’ve also consulted industry representatives to ensure our course curriculum embeds the skills employers in the public health sector look for.

As a graduate, you’ll meet the six areas of practice outlined in the national competency framework, which has been produced by the Council of Academic Public Health Institutions of Australia (CAPHIA). These competencies are a minimum prerequisite that can be expected of any Australian public health graduate in the industry. These areas include:

  • Health Monitoring and Surveillance
  • Disease Prevention and Control
  • Health Protection
  • Health Promotion
  • Health Policy, Planning and Management
  • Evidence-based Professional Population Health Practice

What you'll learn

Courses within your first year will develop your foundational knowledge in core areas of public health practice. Your second year focuses on applying your knowledge to simulated real-world scenarios and case studies. In your final year, you’ll gain critical employment skills to develop your career as a leading-edge public health practitioner.

Your public health degree applies a multidisciplinary approach, exploring areas such as health promotion, health law and ethics, human biology, epidemiology, as well as Aboriginal, national and global health issues. Throughout your degree, you’ll learn about policy development, data analysis and reporting, media and advocacy, public events, and community-based education and interventions, and how these strategies can be used to improve the health of populations.

Practical, real-world learning is at the heart of your degree. As a student, you’re encouraged to think just as a public health practitioner would. You’ll evaluate current health services, programs or policies and develop recommendations that take into account Australia’s policy environment and political landscape. In your research project, you’ll also use epidemiological data to investigate how the environment impacts health and specific population groups.

Careers in health are on the rise. In fact, the Australian Government’s National Health and Medical Industry Growth Plan is a $1.3 billion investment aimed at driving a new era of better health care, as well as fueling jobs and growth in new firms and industries through research*.
