Public Health Research Pathway

Good quality research makes an important contribution to public health. The Public Health Research Pathway is designed for students who want to gain a good understanding of the key research methods relevant to public health and to gain some experience in applying these methods. Note that your transcript will not explicitly identify that you undertook this pathway and you are not restricted to the listed units – they are provided only as a guide.

In addition to completing the required credit points of core units of study, Graduate Diploma students must complete 12 credit points of electives, and Masters students must complete 16 credit points of electives. A minimum of 6 (Grad Dip) or 8 (Masters) credit points of electives must come from Part 1 of the Table of Units of Study: Public Health.
