Associate Degree in Public Health (Specialisation)
CQUniversity - Rockhampton

Course outline

The Associate Degree in Public Health is an ideal course for community-minded individuals with an interest in making a difference in the community. This course will develop students’ broad skills and knowledge in public health, while developing specialised expertise in health promotion and environmental health. Students will be prepared for a diverse career in emerging public health paraprofessions. Public health refers to a collection of disciplines that share a common aim to prevent disease, promote health and improve wellbeing among the population as a whole, rather than focusing on individuals. The major in health promotion covers topics such as drugs in society, health promotion strategies, indigenous studies and community needs assessment. The environmental health major focuses learning on microbiology, food safety, environmental science, law and communicable disease control. Students have the option to continue their studies and complete the Bachelor of Public Health (Specialisation), allowing them to further enhance their future career prospects.
