Public Health is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organised efforts of society.

The Master of Public Health is designed for those who wish to gain an appreciation of how different scientific disciplines can be used to structure enquiry and develop the knowledge base for research and professional practice in epidemiology, public health and social science, ethics and health.
