Master of Health Communication


Course Description

Health communication comprises one of the largest industry workforces in public relations and media, acting as a fundamental bridge between medical bodies, public health authorities and the wider public through the media. The Master of Health Communication delivers core media skills to help you become an effective communicator across health and medicine, public affairs, public relations, community relations and journalism.
Our unique Health Communication program is the most comprehensive and specialised course of its kind in Australia, combining the expertise of the University of Sydney’s Department of Media and Communications with the public health resources of the School of Public Health. With a cross-disciplinary and collaborative approach to both media and health disciplines, our program incorporates media relations, organisational communication, and health communication approaches.

As a Master of Health Communication graduate, you will enter the profession with a solid evidence-based education in international health, community‑oriented health practice, obesity and other disease prevention strategies, and health promotion. Our training also covers such topics as campaign development, media advocacy, humanitarian and emergency health issues, bioethics, and an understanding of health cultures, policy and systems. Featuring a well-regarded internship program, you will have the chance to attain high-level skills from work experience while fostering professional contacts and networks before you complete the course.

The Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate in Media Practice provide shorter avenues to update and extend your professional skills, or to explore new career directions. This master’s degree requires four core units of study.
