Program Description

Delivered fully online, the course-based Master of Science (MSc) in One Health degree program is designed to equip veterinarians, animal scientists, medical doctors, health professionals and biological scientists with an in-depth understanding of the principles of, and issues associated with, One Health. Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) is committed to a One Health approach to sectoral and multidisciplinary integrative mechanism to enable research aimed at sustainably reducing the burden of zoonoses. RUSVM’s geographical location in the Caribbean, its existing research focus on One Health, its experienced faculty and its global partnerships will allow students to gain a hands-on educational experience on one of the most topical global issues.

Zoonoses and other diseases affecting livestock production and health have serious impacts on the economic growth, health and food security and alleviation of poverty in tropical and resource constrained countries. Students will have the opportunity to explore the complex interplay of altered environments and infectious diseases as an increasing threat to agriculture, public health and endangered/threatened species, on a global basis.

The MSc One Health degree program requires 41 credits ( based on guidelines from the United States Department of Education), obtained through coursework and a project, leading to the submission of a thesis. Students are required to undertake specified core courses amounting to 23 credits. The MSc program is delivered over 1 year on a full-time basis as well as part-time over 2 or 3 years.

Course Structure

• Applied Epidemiology and Biostatistics (5 cr.)
• Public Policy Formulation & Implementation (3 cr.)
• Leadership and Organizational Behavior (3 cr.)
• Research project design (1 cr.)
• Conservation medicine/ecosystem health (5 cr.)
• Zoonoses (intersection between human and animal health) (3 cr.)
• Surveillance and diagnostic methods (3 cr.)

The program also includes a research project/Mini Dissertation (15 cr.) and a 1-week residential in St Kitts (1cr.) as well as electives (dependent on availability) such as animal health program management (2 cr.), safety of foods of animal origin (2 cr.), disaster management (2 cr.).

Bioscience is the collective term for the interrelated disciplines that deal with the structure, function and behaviour of living organisms and systems. The functioning of living systems is dependent on a complex hierarchy of interactions operating at many different levels of organisation from molecules to populations. The focus of study may vary from molecular and cellular biology, to whole organism biology and to ecology the biosphere and the environment. All branches of the biosciences share a common empirical scientific method, ie, they involve the experimental collection and interpretation of data and are philosophically linked via an acceptance of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. The MRes Bioscience places particular emphasis on understanding whole organism biology and/or the interactions between organisms and their environment.

Course structure

The MRes Bioscience is a research-based postgraduate course. The course is one-year full-time (two years part-time) and designed to provide graduates with the foundations for a career in research, industry, the public sector or academia. To be awarded the MRes students must obtain 180 M-level credits, 80 credits from taught and subject-specific modules and 100 credits through the completion of an extensive research project.

The MRes degree serves as a qualification in its own right for entry to a research career in industry, or as an enhanced route of entry to a PhD programme. The course provides high quality postgraduate training in the methods and practice of research not normally offered in conventional taught masters courses. The course develops the skills and the knowledge of graduates enabling them to carry out research in a manner that maximises their personal and professional potential and achieve the greatest benefits for the organisations employing them.
Throughout the course students have the opportunity, with guidance, to assess their suitability for a career in industry or further research training. The research project provides a real intellectual challenge and thus enables the student to demonstrate creativity and initiative and, where appropriate, provide a foundation for doctoral study. The course is structured to include a significant research component comprising at least 50 per cent of the working year and a series of supporting taught courses that make up the rest of the year.

Areas of study

The Master of Research is a qualification designed specifically to provide students with an initial training in research with the expectation that students will progress to undertake a research-based career in academia or industry. The course provides a flexible opportunity to obtain high-level research-based training combined with the development of academic and professional skills necessary for employment. The particular focus of the course is given by the students' choice of research project topic, which also determines the topics studied in the optional modules. Because of this the exact nature of the course is to some extent unique to each individual student.

The core research methodologies module at the heart of the MRes equips students with a fundamental understanding of the research process across a wide and dynamic range of disciplines.

The extended research project gives the opportunity for cutting edge research to be relevant area. Additional elements of the course aim to provide an integrated, employment-focused, research training programme for students wishing to develop their research skills within the biosciences. The choices of subject-specific modules available provide opportunities to study aspects of molecular biology, whole organism biology, genetics and microbiology.
