Combining a Master of Public Health with a Master of Health Research will give greater flexibility and opportunity to your career. This double degree is a strong modern qualification that will enable you to tackle contemporary and future population health issues with high level public health and health research skills. It is also an alternative pathway to Higher Degrees by Research.

This double degree will equip students with the tools to investigate, critique and respond to real world population health problems in local and global contexts, as well as advanced knowledge and skills in health research design and evidence-based practice. Unique features of the course include learning from acclaimed Menzies School of Health Research professionals in the specialist areas of Indigenous health, global health, public health practice and health research.

Our students study: epidemiology; biostatistics; quantitative and qualitative research methods. They learn to analyse and interpret population health information, evaluate and design public health interventions and formulate evidence-based strategies to address complex health and social issues. Our students apply public health approaches to: health promotion; disease control; health systems; health policy; decision making; the environment and the sustainable development goals. Students also consolidate their learning by undertaking a research project supervised by an expert in the field.
