Increasingly, people in a wide range of professions are being asked to incorporate health promotion activities within their workplace. Deakin’s suite of postgraduate courses in health promotion is designed to provide students from varying backgrounds with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for developing appropriate approaches to health promotion practice.
The Graduate Certificate of Health Promotion is ideally suited to those wishing to gain employment in the health sector, as well as those working in the health sector who wish to upgrade their knowledge and qualifications to pursue management roles.
Throughout the course you will acquire knowledge of current and emerging health issues in local and global contexts and be equipped with the core competencies that will enable you to practise confidently in this field. You will develop a foundation of knowledge of health promotion principles and values, skills pertinent to health education and communication endeavours and the practical skills required to undertake needs assessments, program planning and evaluation.
The Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Master of Health Promotion are a suite of postgraduate programs. As such, students completing the Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma can elect to move (articulate) into a higher award.
Graduate Certificate (H515) students can articulate into the Graduate Diploma (H615) or Master of Health Promotion (H759) whilst Graduate Diploma (H615) students can articulate into the Master of Health Promotion (H759).
Students who wish to articulate to a higher award should discuss their request with a student adviser during the final trimester of study for their current course.
Graduates in this course should be eligible to apply for membership of the Australian Health Promotion Association and the International Union of Health Promotion and Education.
