Help build better communities
Do you want a career that helps others? With a degree in community health improvement, you’ll learn how to inspire individuals and communities to lead healthier, happier lives. USC’s holistic programs teach you the physical, social and emotional drivers of health, and equip you with the practical skills you’ll need to make a difference – either at home or internationally.
Work in a growing field
Community health is one of Australia’s fastest-growing sectors, which means your degree will open up a wide range of career opportunities. It’s estimated there’ll be an additional 16,800 jobs in health support and 19,600* jobs in social and welfare services in the next four years alone. That’s on top of 8,700* new roles for qualified social workers.
Why study at USC?
Our degrees include a strong focus on respect for persons, human rights, social justice and professional integrity. You’ll be supported to build your practical skills through USC-arranged work or field placements, meaning you’ll be job-ready when you graduate.
