Master of Public Health

The Master of Public Health from CQUniversity Australia is the pinnacle level of study in the CQUniversity suite of postgraduate public health courses. It 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 Master of Public Health at CQUniversity will also incorporate a social perspective of public health skills, knowledge and practice. Very practical in nature and designed with best practice and contemporary health trends in mind, this course will provide the professional development opportunity you need to develop your career in Public Health.

You will have the opportunity to apply these concepts in practical ways in both strengths-based and disease prevention approaches. This will ensure that you apply your learning to real-world situations.

“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.”

Our Public Health courses have been developed in response to the contemporary needs for a more holistic view of public health that has both Australian and international relevance.


The Master of Public Health is the pinnacle of three postgraduate Public Health courses at CQUniversity. It builds on the foundation knowledge of the Graduate Certificate in Public Health and advanced studies of the Graduate Diploma of Public Health to provide you with an opportunity to participate in a project or explore a multidisciplinary liberal studies option. The depth of study available with CQUniversity in public health provides a study-level option to match your career needs.


Our courses and units are specifically designed to offer maximum flexibility so you can manage work, family and other commitments while you study. CQUniversity is offering this course both on campus in Melbourne or by online study, enabling you to study from anywhere in Australia, when and how it suits you.


The CQUniversity Public Health postgraduate courses are different as they adopt a social-ecological model of health that provides an alternative perspective on public health education than a more traditional medical model approach to public health.  The approach CQUniversity has taken in public health education reflects contemporary national and international principles and trends in public health.
