About public health

Enhance lives on a larger scale. Public health professionals dedicate their lives to improving the wellbeing of others, whether it’s disease prevention or achieving better health outcomes through the improvement of social and political systems. As a public health graduate, you’ll be prepared for a career planning, developing and managing solutions to enhance the lives and wellbeing of populations – whether for a handful of people or across multiple continents. You’ll also be proficient in environmental, economic, technical, educational and legislative measures.

Make others your mission

Backed by ACU’s commitment to human dignity and the common good, our public health courses prepare you to practise with a community, national or global focus – with a perspective of ethics and social justice.
