Graduate Certificate in Public Health
The Graduate Certificate in Public Health from CQUniversity Australia is an innovative course that will introduce you to the social-ecological model of health.
This model which is strongly aligned with contemporary trends and challenges in public health provides the basis of innovative interventions for social change. Unlike other Public Health courses that traditionally focus on the medical model of health, the Graduate Certificate in Public Health from CQUniversity Australia will also incorporate a social perspective of public health skills, knowledge and practice.
In this innovative course, the origins and evolution of public health and the underlying principles of community-based and community-led public health will be explored. The social-ecological model of health forms the basis of the Graduate Certificate in Public Health and 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 suit your interests and needs.

“CQUniversity is not only somewhere that you can learn about your chosen subject but also about yourself. It’s really easy to get on with people and make new friends, because like me, everyone comes from a different part of the world.”
