Master of Public Health (Advanced)

Australian National University ANU

The ANU Master of Public Health will equip students with the foundations of public health practice, provides them with an understanding of contemporary public health issues relevant to Australia and teach students practical techniques for analysing public health problems. This program provides real experience in public health through core courses designed to give students the skills they need and electives that suit their additional interests. Workplace-related learning can be readily incorporated for those who work in relevant public health jobs. This program will help students improve the population's mental and physical health through discovery, education and the translation of research into effective health policy and practice. ANU public health research covers areas such as non-communicable disease epidemiology, infectious disease surveillance and outbreak investigation, global health, health services research, social and cultural determinants of health, environmental health, healthy ageing and mental health. The Advanced program provides students with the opportunity to extend their practical, coursework experience in public health with the development and implementation of a research project.
