Prepares students for a role as a health promotion professional in a changing global environment.
Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over their health by strengthening their skills and capabilities and reducing inequalities in the community. Students will cover planning, development and implementation of health promotion policies and projects, such as Quit Smoking, Be Active or LiveLighter, using a variety of strategies, including e-health, mass media, community development and engagement processes, advocacy, social marketing, research and evaluation. The content also covers various health promotion settings (e.g schools and rural areas) and population groups (e.g refugees and minority groups, youth, and the ageing population).
Good question. It's what other organisations ask our graduates every year....Find out more
It's how we discovered that the quality of teaching here is the best in Western Australia. Being rated 5 stars by our graduates for 11 years in a row confirms that.

And it's how we know that we're one of the best young universities in the world under 50 years old.
