Study a bachelor in public health in South Africa
The bachelor of public health is a multidisciplinary, flexible degree program that provides students with the opportunity to learn key principles in public health, and health programs and policy leading to a wide range of careers. It also provides a pathway to post-graduate clinical programs, as well as to honors studies in public health.
Through International cross-campus collaborations, placements and internships expose you to a variety of international staff, students and stakeholders, giving you a global perspective on public health. MSA also encourages students to take advantage of local opportunities for collaborations between Monash South Africa and partners within the South African community.
During your first year of the public health program, you'll explore the biological bases of health and disease, health and social care systems and global health. Fieldwork in your third year provides a broad exposure to the public health sciences that underpin an understanding of health and illness in both individuals and populations.
The job market growth in the health, local government, and workplace and education sectors continues unabated. There is a strong demand for multi-skilled program managers and for prevention promotion workers, particularly to work with vulnerable groups and ageing populations. Government and non-government organizations are constantly in need of health policy analysts and policy makers especially as health, social and other policy sectors are expected to develop partnerships and cross-sector partnerships and policies.
Technology is changing the way we see the world. Wouldn't you like an education that's not just a qualification, but that opens doors? Wouldn't you like to be part of a diverse cosmopolitan environment and learn through a global network of opportunities? At Monash South Africa, the aim is to build minds imbued with an entrepreneurial spirit.
