Master of Environment
Public Health is offered as a major field of study in the Master of Environment degree. The environments in which we live immediately impact on our health. The Public Health major is designed to ensure the creation and maintenance of environments that promote good public health. By collaborating with other disciplines and sectors, we work to identify and manage environmental health problems.
Study in this field will provide you with the tools used in environmental health practice, and by public health practitioners. These include surveillance, monitoring, observation, analysis, and selected techniques in biostatistics, epidemiology and health economics.
Other skills we develop are more specific to environmental health or environmental studies, such as environmental, social and health impact assessment and qualitative and quantitative risk analysis.
This major is a specialist companion program to the Master of Public Health which is offered at the University of Melbourne and at many other institutions. Students benefit from Melbourne's strong health sciences programs.
By studying in this area, you might expect to find employment in the health industry; government agencies, within the environmental and health sectors; consulting companies, and development agencies.
