This course seeks to develop professional knowledge and skills for clinicians delivering mental health care. Depending upon their undergraduate studies students select from community mental health, child psychotherapy, psychiatrist in training or mental health nursing. These specialisations aim to meet the specific needs of these disciplines within mental health services. The course can be completed by coursework, or for those professionals seeking to build their research capacity, incorporation of a research project or minor thesis is available to address that need.
This three-year, part-time degree is taught off campus by some of Australia's most experienced mental health professionals and researchers, allowing you to apply the latest thinking to your workplace as you study. The course also includes an on-campus workshop.
Whichever stream you choose, you'll graduate able to evaluate research literature, identify research gaps, conduct practice-based research projects and develop, apply and advocate evidence-based best practice.
The Master of Mental Health Science allows Graduate students who are working in the health and welfare areas and disciplines to further their education by a combination of coursework and research.
Students can choose to specialise in community mental health, child psychotherapy, psychiatrist in training or mental health nursing.
This course prepares graduates for senior clinical, management, policy and planning mental health positions in both clinical and non-clinical settings.
