We have reimagined our Public Health programs to prepare you for a future full of possibilities.
In 2019, our Master of International Public Health will be renamed the Master of Global Health, the only degree of its kind in Australia. Our new, premium program will increase in duration from 12 to 18 months (from 48 credit points to 72 credit points), providing you with the time to specialise in your chosen field, and the opportunity to undertake a diverse range of international and professional placements.
Changes will be in effect from Semester 1, 2019.
You may still apply for Semester 2 intake of the existing Master of International Public Health up until 30 June 2018 (via this page).
Gain the skills and knowledge required to make a difference in low and middle income countries with our Master of International Public Health. You will learn strategies to develop programs sensitive to local cultures in the developing world and deliver transformative programs in countries with limited resources.
This program will enable you to improve the lives of some of the world's most disadvantaged people. It covers control of infectious diseases such as malaria and HIV/AIDS, as well as the new epidemic of non-communicable diseases.
You will be taught by academics that are active within the international public health community and have specialised experience working in a wide range of developing countries. With students coming from all over the world, you will be part of a cohort that allows you to share experiences and learn from your peers as well as your teachers.
With the Master of International Public Health program, you will have the opportunity for international placements and enjoy flexible study that you can tailor to suit your needs. Our graduates work in a range of international settings including the World Health Organization, Medecins San Frontiers and Oxfam, as well as bilateral aid agencies and international ministries of health.
The Master of International Public Health is suitable for graduates in a related field or graduates in an unrelated field with two years' work experience in health or international development.
This program is offered online and may be completed full time or part time.
