Students and prospective students must be able todemonstrate that they have acquired or have the ability to acquire the inherent requirements for theirdegree.Reasonable adjustments may be made to assist students manage additional circumstances impacting ontheir studies provided these do not change the academic integrity of a degree. Reasonable adjustmentsdo not alter the need to be able to demonstrate the inherent requirements of the course.Students who believe they will experience challenges completing their degree or course because of theirdisability, health condition or other reason should discuss their concerns with an Accessibility Servicesteam member or a member of College staff, such as the Course Coordinator. In the case where it isdetermined that inherent requirements cannot be met with reasonable adjustments, the University staffcan provide guidance regarding other study options.Page 6 of 182 Subject details2.1 Subject descriptionThis subject provides an introduction and overview of the discipline of public health, including the coreprinciples of prevention, promotion and protection that underpin it.

Your courselearning outcomes can be located in the entry for your course in the electronic JCU Course and SubjectHandbook 2021 (click on ‘Course Information’ bar/ select ‘Postgraduate Courses’/ select relevantcourse/ scroll down to ‘Academic Requirements for Course Completion’, ‘Course learning outcomes’).2.3 Learning and teaching in this subjectThis subject is an on-line subject with lectures and readings. Students should expect to take around 10hours per week to complete the lectures, readings and assignment work. Students should also plan fortheir mid-semester and final examinations. How quickly you progress through the material is up to you,however please take careful note of the mid-semester exam time, since all the material from the weekspreceding the mid-semester exam will be included. All material should be reviewed for the final exam,with a focus on the material following the mid-semester exam.Learning and teaching activities may be recorded for this subject. Personal Information in the form ofimages and audio may be collected by JCU during the recording. This Personal Information may appearas part of the recording which is accessible to students and staff in this subject on Learn JCU2.4 Student feedback on subject and teachingAs part of our commitment at JCU to improving the quality of our courses and teaching, we regularlyseek feedback on your learning experiences. Student feedback informs evaluation of subject andteaching strengths and areas that may need refinement or change. YourJCU Subject and TeachingSurveys provide a formal and confidential method for you to provide feedback about your subjects andthe staff members teaching within them. These surveys are available to all students through LearnJCU.Page 7 of 18You will receive an email invitation when the survey opens. We value your feedback and ask that youprovide constructive feedback about your learning experiences for each of your subjects, in accordancewith responsibilities outlined in the Student Code of Conduct. Refrain from providing personal feedbackon topics that do not affect your learning experiences. Malicious comments about staff are deemedunacceptable by the University.In response to previous student feedback and other data, the following enhancements to this subjecthave been made:• Greater emphasis on the key points of the readings and how these link to the lecture content hasbeen provided.• Greater focus on issues in and impacting the tropics.• Collaborate sessions are provided, primarily as an opportunity to unpack the assessment tasks andexpectations. These sessions are recorded and made available for those who can’t attend in person.Some anonymous student comments were:• The subject content is fantastic but I really appreciated all the additional readings, video clips andlinks to help reinforce and complement principles learned during the week.• The subject covered a range of topics which demonstrated how broad public health can be. I likedhaving the different lecturers present their material as it added variety/diversity. The case studieswere excellent and it was good to narrow down on an issue within a country context. There weresome excellent research papers selected that provided good insight into the topics. The use of TEDtalks and videos is always welcomed as it allows breaks between readings.• Students should be encouraged to do this unit early on in the course.2.5 Subject resources and special requirementsThis textbook is a requirement for the subject:• Liamputtong, P.
