Create happier, healthier communities
Based on a socio-ecological model of health, the Health Promotion suite explores contemporary health promotion at individual, group, organisation, community and population levels. Core study concepts include foundations, values and principles of health promotion; the assessment of health needs; and the planning, implementation and evaluation of health promotion programs in a range of settings.

The Graduate Diploma and Master of Health Promotion are designed for those looking to work in designated health promotion roles, or for those wanting to develop deeper knowledge and skills in health promotion to complement their current roles. Some employers, for example Queensland Health, require applicants to have completed at least the equivalent of the Graduate Diploma in Health Promotion to be considered for employment as health promotion practitioners.
These programs give you the flexibility to study courses on campus, online or a mixture of the two delivery modes. You can change study modes at any time during your program. Teaching, learning and assessment items develop your theoretical knowledge and understanding through the completion of practical and creative tasks.
Graduates are eligible for membership of the Australian Health Promotion Association, the Public Health Association of Australia, and the International Union for Health Promotion and Education.
