Health promotion contributes to social change for improved health outcomes, especially for marginalised and disadvantaged communities. The course explores evidence-based health promotion strategies that improve the health of individuals, families, communities and countries. Get hands-on practice developing these initiatives from start to finish, while gaining a deep understanding of the social, environmental, political and economic conditions that impact health. A strong focus of the course is professional development through practical experience. In particular, the course’s new work-integrated learning elective allows you to undertake 150 hours of valuable industry experience. This can be an agency-based work placement with one of our many industry partners, or agency-sponsored work based at the Deakin Freelancing Hub. These projects give you the chance to develop and apply your new skills in real-world contexts. They also allow you to work alongside leading health promotion practitioners and build professional networks that unlock new career pathways.
16 credit points. The course comprises 8 core units (these are compulsory) and 8 elective units (which must include a minor or major project). The exact number of credit points you study depends on how much credit you receive as recognition of prior learning (RPL).
