Objective: Established as an innovative, prominent, broadminded study program in national and international level, and a pioneer in developing Public Health Sciences based on religious and morality. Course Description: The master program covers five interest study, included Biostatistics, Public Health Nutrition, Health Promotion and Behavioral Sciences, Maternal and Child Health and Public Mental Health. The program designed in 43 to 47 credit, with the length of study are 4 to 6 semesters. Outcome: The graduated expected to conduct innovative research in the field of public health, able to formulate problem-solving approach in the field of public health and able to develop health care holistically. Alumni Testimony Aguida Bendiata Da Silva (Timor Leste) Studying abroad gave me new horizons, especially the knowledge about nutrition. I worked with experienced professors, administration staffs and great campus facilities who always supported me and lead me to my success. In social life, I made friendship with other indonesian students who came from different background, culture and religions.    After graduation I went home to Timor Leste and tried to find out a solution for two crucial issues, water and sanitation. In the future, I plan to continue with my Doctoral program in Faculty of Public Health, Universitas Airlangga. (Timbuktu Harthana ) “Being a student of Master of Public Health Universitas Airlangga with the interest of Health Promotion and Behavioral Sciences is a precious learning experience for me. I did not only study and pursue high score, but I also got the chance to apply the knowledge I obtained during my study. For 2 years I learned and grew with the professional educators. Together with other students, I was involved in academic and non-academic activities in the midst of accreditation preparation and research with BKKBN about Keluarga Berencana (Planned Family).   During study, we were not always learning inside the class. Oftentimes we were asked to visit puskesmas (health centers) and even directly to people in order to understand the real public health issues. In my opinion, as students we were positioned equally. We were not only students who “stole” lecturers’ knowledge, but we were also considered as partner in sharing knowledge and experience. We were forced to develop independently, not only depend on lecturers’ lectures.   The campus gave chances for students to attend various health seminars or public lectures from experts in health and nutrition, for instance BPOM and Institut Pertanian Bogor (IPB). Besides that, there were also social service activities and student exchange programs offered. I joined a week program in Ubon Ratchathani University, Thailand. Open space and discussion spots with WiFi were some of the things I enjoyed during my time as a student in this campus.” Partner School Association of Public Health College Institutions   Several hospitals are listed as partner for residency program and research place for students.

Best Master Degrees in Public Health in Asia 2017. The AUA School of Public Health (SPH) offers a two-year graduate program in Public Health – Master of Public Health (MPH). The MPH program engages experienced professionals from health care and other related fields in transformational education and training in population-based approaches to health and health services research, delivery, and evaluation. Our graduates are then prepared to lead in improving health and health services in Armenia, the Caucasus, Europe, and the World. The MPH provides a thorough grounding in population-based approaches to health sector problem identification, investigation, analysis, and managed response. The overall objective of the MPH Program is to prepare health professionals to draw on the knowledge and skills from a variety of disciplines to define, critically assess the health needs of people, and translate that knowledge into improved health by designing, implementing, and evaluating programs to meet those needs. Thus, the intensive, modular curriculum emphasizes basic public health sciences and essential managerial and analytic skills including project planning and evaluation, epidemiologic investigation and data analysis, understanding complex determinants of health, effective communication to professional and lay audiences, and leadership. The two-year curriculum is organized around a guiding framework, which first provides students a conceptual overview of the diverse profession of public health and the team-oriented approach to professional practice. The courses are taught in intensive, sequential blocks, which build upon and integrate with each other. The first year curriculum provides exposure to the breadth of public health disciplines. The second year curriculum provides advanced training in key methodological disciplines and concludes with a student-directed thesis-like project which integrates essential public health knowledge, skills, and methods in a professionally and personally relevant practice context. Students proceed through the program as part of a defined cohort, fostering group spirit and gaining experience in multi-disciplinary group problem solving, project leadership, and management. While the program consists almost entirely of requirements, students infuse elective content through the multitude of individual and group projects associated with each module and through special studies activities. Students are encouraged to become involved with the Center for Health Services Research and Development, which provides an opportunity for supervised, mentored practical experiences while addressing the health needs of Armenia and the region.
