About this course

This degree will provide you with core media skills to help you become an effective communicator across health and medicine, public affairs, public relations, community relations and journalism.

Designed for aspiring and experienced communicators, health advocates, public relations specialists, media experts, and healthcare professionals, the course encourages development of skills in:

  • clear communication of public health campaigns and policy topics
  • creation of public education programs that nurture a more healthcare-literate population
  • the ability to raise awareness of, and advocate for, specific healthcare matters
  • management of communication technology, including social media, to ensure information accuracy and uphold ethical standards

While our students come from different disciplines and career stages, all are motivated to make a difference in people's health and wellbeing.
