Master of Adolescent Health and Wellbeing
This multi-disciplinary course explores the developmental, psychological, social and environmental issues that impact on adolescent health and wellbeing. The course covers the evidence base for effective programs and practice in the areas where young people live, learn and socialise, and in the health-care sector where young people seek support. The minor thesis component in the final year provides the opportunity to undertake a small research project and write up under the guidance of a supervisor.
The knowledge and skills gained will enhance the practice of a diverse range of health and education professionals such as nurses, social workers, teachers, youth workers, police officers, so that they can better engage with young people and work more effectively towards improving their health and wellbeing outcomes.
