Public health is about improving the health and wellbeing of the whole community. The relative failure of curative medicine to significantly reduce morbidity and mortality rates in recent years has led to an increasing emphasis on preventative measures. Public health is a major component of this preventative approach.
Our postgraduate courses in public health give you the opportunity to increase your knowledge of the major principles pertaining to public health and current issues in the public health field. You will also learn how to effectively plan, implement and evaluate public health programs in a variety of settings. The courses offer a variety of topics, including health promotion, health and environmental change, nutrition, epidemiology and biostatistics, and health policy and management.
