About Master of Public Health, MPH - at CQUniversity Australia

In this innovative course, the origins and evolution of public health and the underlying principles of community-based and community-led public health will be explored. The social-ecological model of health forms the basis of the Master of Public Health and you will study complex adaptive systems thinking and how this influences the way we think about public health.

You will have the opportunity to apply these concepts in practical ways in both strengths-based and disease prevention approaches. This will ensure that you apply your learning to real-world situations.

You will also have the flexibility of choosing from a list of electives or to undertake the project stream once you have completed the core structure. This project can be practice or research-based allowing you to develop specific skills and knowledge in your area of interest.
