What will I learn?

The Master of Health Promotion gives you the skills and platform to create healthy social and ecological environments for whole populations. You will develop skills and knowledge in health program planning, evidence-based strategies, policy, advocacy and research to prevent, minimise and respond early to health issues and their underlying causes.

Course structure:

To complete the Master of Health Promotion students must attain 16 credit points.

The Master of Health Promotion is typically 8, 12 or 16 credit points. The exact number of credit points you study depends on how much credit you receive as recognition of prior learning (RPL) – your professional experience and previous qualifications – which can save you time and money.

The course comprises 8 core units (these are compulsory) and 8 elective units (which must include a minor or major project)

The majority of core and elective units will be offered in Cloud (online) and campus mode. Some units may also be offered in block mode.

All commencing Faculty of Health Undergraduate and Postgraduate course work students are required to complete HAI010 Academic Integrity in their first trimester of study (0 credit point compulsory unit).

Career outcomes:

The health sector is Australia’s largest and fastest-growing. Contemporary health challenges such as obesity, mental health, climate change and an ageing population have increased the demand for skilled health promotion practitioners able to address the underlying social and ecological determinants of ill health and lead in the promotion of wellbeing.

With a Master of Health Promotion you can take advantage of this demand. Health promotion practitioners are employed locally and globally in all levels of government, health services, the education sector, private business and non-government, not-for-profit and community organisations. This also includes national and state-wide peak authorities such as VicHealth, the National Heart Foundation, Asthma Foundation, Gender Equity Victoria and The Cancer Council. Some of the areas you could be working in include:

community development

social planning and activities

health education

program development and evaluation

advocacy
