From health promotion to disease prevention, there is a growing international demand for public health professionals in both the government, non-profit and private sectors.
Public health is society's response to threats to the collective health of its citizens. Public health practitioners work to enhance and protect the health of populations by identifying their health problems and needs, and providing programs and services to address these needs.
Many students across Canada have showcased an increased interest in the postgraduate public health field, especially since the degrees offer a wide range of career options following graduation.Studying in this field as an international student gives Canadians an understanding of the public health realm on an international scale, making Australia a top choice for Canadians.
Master of Public Health programs can be completed by coursework only, coursework with an optional research project, or coursework with a mandatory research project.
