Ready to think creatively about policies and practices that prevent disease and prolong life?

Public health is a broad discipline that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of communities and populations. Public health practitioners assess large-scale issues and come up with policy-based strategies to tackle them.  

What will you do?

Our Graduate Certificate in Public Health can be completed in one semester of full-time study, or two semesters of part-time study. You will:

  • complete two core courses and two electives
  • understand the organisation and delivery of public health services
  • gain insight into relevant social, cultural, economic and environmental factors
  • explore policies and practices that support and improve health.

Where could it take you?

Whether you’re studying for professional development or out of interest, a graduate certificate will give you advanced communication skills and a strong foundation of knowledge. It could also be your first step towards a graduate diploma or master in public health, opening doors to a wide range of new and enhanced career opportunities.
