Overview

Public health skills and knowledge are fundamental to addressing many of the 21st century's complex health problems and to achieving public health objectives for improving the health of populations, communities and individuals.

This 12-unit course provides students with the full range of quantitative, analytical and communication skills necessary to work in the broad domain of public health. It especially focuses on developing skills in the quantitative methods of the population-based health sciences and their problem-solving application for public health, health care and emerging health issues in Australia, developing countries, and globally.

Our program offers you flexibility, with a range of unit choices and the opportunity to specialise in clinical epidemiology, clinical research, health economics, health services management, international health, public health, occupational and environmental health and research streams.

Undertaking the Master of Public Health at Monash University, a Group of Eight University and one that is ranked in the Top 100 Universities worldwide, will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the broad domain of public health and a postgraduate qualification that is recognised around the world.

Graduate Jeff Davey, former CEO of one of Victoria's largest aged-care, not-for-profit organisations, chose the course because of its reputation and his desire for skills to gather evidence, measure outcomes, evaluate policies and work better with government.

"My experience, particularly within the aged-care sector, is that there are lot of people doing a lot of good things, but much of it is not evidence based. I believe there is a tremendous opportunity for managers and leaders to have a much more rigorous basis for their management and professional practice, and the MPH is a fantastic way to get that."

Undertaking a case study and practical experience can be specifically developed and supported as part of your program, which gives you further opportunity to improve the hands on skills required to work in this growing field of health.

Teaching is structured as a combination of face to face, including block days, teaching and on-line educational delivery, to suit working professionals and those who balance other responsibilities in their lives.

There are also specified exit points for both a Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma qualification if you meet the requirements.

Career opportunities

Graduates may move into careers in a diverse range of areas within the public health and wider health sector, or further develop and extend their current working career. These may include professional practice, research, public health management, health care facilities' management, international aid organisation roles and professional roles within developing countries.

The Master of Public Health is an internationally recognised qualification for working in the field of public health. The Monash degree fulfills the core discipline requirements of a Master of Public Health for the Australasian Faculty of Public Health Medicine.
