Why study Public Health?

Public health focuses on preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health. It's an excellent choice if you are keen to pursue a clinical career in areas like medicine, allied health or social work.

The Public Health major will teach you to measure, plan, manage and evaluate health programs and services to prevent illness and promote good health in communities. You will study a wide range of health disciplines and competencies including biomedical sciences, public health, global health, health research methods, health policy and professional practice (e.g. health law and ethics) and gain in-depth skills and knowledge in health to bring about positive changes in communities. You will apply this knowledge in your third year, where you will spend 90 hours on placement in non-clinical health-related organisations around metropolitan and rural Australia.

A public health major can also lead to a research career via Honours or a Master of Public Health.
