The Master of Culture, Health and Medicine is the only program of its kind in Australia. Drawing on anthropological and other social science perspectives, and technical expertise in health-related research and practice, you will understand the nature of health, sickness, and healing in a local and global context. You will emerge with the skills to undertake social and cultural analysis of health practices and policy.
This interdisciplinary program is taught by leading academics, clinicians, and global health practitioners from across the ANU.
Many courses in this program are available online. Although the program itself is not available online, it may be possible for some students with a prior cognate degree to complete the program by selecting only courses that are available online; please note that not all courses are available online and so there is a restricted selection available. Students interested in this option can contact the program convenor to discuss their eligibility and course selections.
The MCHAM may advance your career in health-related fields in development, policy and education, in government, non-government, and international organisations, and can lead to further PhD research.
