Master of Health Practice
This programme is an ideal option for the Bachelor of Health Science graduates to
achieve a masters qualification in a short period of time. The entry to the
programme does not need a medical science background.
Dependant on the specialisation you choose, there are a variety of work opportunities in health services, government agencies, non-governmental organisations and community groups.
The programme currently offers four specialisations:
- Addiction Studies
- Health Promotion
- Pacific Health
- Population Mental Health
Our teaching staff in this programme are leaders in their field. You will hear first-hand about some of the innovative and cutting edge research they deliver.
Students who choose not to complete the requirements for the masters can exit the degree with either a postgraduate diploma or postgraduate certificate.
The City Campus is right in the heart of Auckland. You are within walking distance of all the main cultural, entertainment and commercial hubs.
Originally established as the School of Medicine, the Grafton Campus (opposite Auckland Hospital on the boundary of Auckland Domain) houses the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, including a café, health services, and the Philson Library.
