Overview

This approach reflects contemporary trends in public health and provides the basis of innovative interventions for social change. You will explore the origins and evolution of public health and the underlying principles of community-based and community-led public health. 

You will be introduced to complex adaptive systems thinking and how this influences the way we think about public health. You will also have the opportunity to select two electives from other public health units to best meet your needs.

Public health is a dynamic and broad discipline and completing the units in this degree will help you develop skills and knowledge in complex adaptive systems thinking, social and environmental determinants of health, participatory and pragmatic approaches to public health issues, including strengths-based as well as disease prevention.

Career Opportunities

The Graduate Certificate in Public Health at CQUniversity Australia prepares graduates for work in community-based and community-led health services and organisations. 

You can also work on projects for government and non-government organisations relating to a number of health fields including health promotion and health administration.
