Students develop broad skills and knowledge in public health, while developing specialised expertise in health promotion and environmental health. 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. 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.
