This Graduate Certificate is an exit only award, and is available to students who discontinue their study in the Master of Public Health or the Graduate Diploma of Public Health, after successfully completing four or more units as prescribed in the course structure.
The Graduate Certificate of Public Health equips you with the tools to investigate, critique and respond to real world population health problems in local and global contexts. Unique features include learning from acclaimed Menzies School of Health Research professionals in the specialist areas of Indigenous health, global health, public health practice and health research. You'll work to acquire key public health knowledge and skills and to analyse and interpret population health information, evaluate and design public health interventions, and formulate strategies to address complex health and social issues. You'll apply public health approaches to health promotion, disease control, health systems, health policy, decision-making, the environment, and sustainable development goals.
As a graduate, you may find national and international career opportunities in professional public health practice, health policy and planning, epidemiology, communicable and chronic disease control, health research, community development, or aid work. This course requires a high-level of academic reading and writing, so if you're not confident in your academic literacy skills, you're encouraged to take advantage of the University's academic support services.
