Course content

This Master of Research enables you to understand how personal, cultural, environmental, psychobiological and lifestyle factors impact upon health and wellbeing.

On completion of this course, you will:

  • understand the social science underpinning the development of effective interventions, strategies, and policies aimed at sustainable improvements in health and wellbeing, and reducing physical and psychological health inequalities
  • have an interdisciplinary understanding of the links between social, biological and environmental factors and individual health behaviours, choices, and outcomes
  • understand contemporary issues related to modifiable disease risk behaviours, and the determinants and correlates of these lifestyle behaviours across the lifespan
  • understand the interdisciplinary skills and processes required to translate scientific research into practical health and well-being applications

Working under the supervision of our academic staff, you will be able to pursue a line of study and research that is relevant to your own interests. You will be encouraged to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and identify and investigate your own original research questions.
