Duration: 1.5 years
This Monash Master of Public Health, offered by the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, provides the full range of quantitative, analytical and communication skills necessary to work and provide leadership in the broad domain of public health. It also provides skills in the quantitative methods of the population-based health sciences and their problem-solving application for public health and primary care provision within Australia and developing countries. Students learn, integrate and apply core knowledge and skills in public health in core units of epidemiology, biostatistics, research methods and principles and practice and challenges of public health and can choose an elective study program from a wide range of units to give them depth of understanding within their study program according to their career interests. To guide students in developing their elective study program, with depth for career development and interests, electives are broadly organised into the key areas of expertise of: epidemiology and biostatistics; clinical research methods; health economics; disease/injury prevention and control and health promotion; health policy, planning and management; global health and human rights; occupational and environmental health; and capstone unit/research project/case study.
The course offers students the opportunity to integrate and extend their knowledge and skills gained in this course through a capstone experience, as a professional practice development unit. There is also the opportunity for students to undertake a research project or case study (consultation with the course research project coordinator is required prior to enrolment in research units).
The course structure and flexibility assists students to extend, integrate and apply their core knowledge and skills with depth in key areas of interest according to their background and career development interests, something that employers have identified as important, and to gain knowledge and skills in new areas across the broad domain of public health to equip them for future challenges.
