About

Good health begins in our everyday lives; in how we work, live and play. As the range of public health concerns attributed to lifestyle and environment grows, so does the need for dedicated health professionals to address these issues.

With a Master of Health Promotion, you have the opportunity to make a broad impact on public health through programs, strategy, policy and education. The program prepares you for careers that allow you to make contributions towards safe, stimulating and enjoyable working and living conditions for all.

 You will study the foundations and principles of public health; how to assess health needs, how to plan, implement and evaluate health promotion programs; settings for health promotion; epidemiology; research methods and more.

For added flexibility, there is an option to exit this program with a Graduate Diploma in Health Promotion after completing eight courses (96 units).

Career opportunities

As a graduate, you can pursue a career in health promotion as a practitioner, researcher, academic, consultant, policy officer, social advocate, project worker, project manager or educator in international, national, state and local level government and non-government organisations, community organisations, professional associations, private industry, or tertiary institutions.
