Epidemiology is the study of the distribution of diseases in populations and their underlying causes, and its application to disease prevention and control.
The MSc in Epidemiology offers training in the methodology, design, conduct and interpretation of epidemiological studies on chronic and infectious diseases.
It is particularly suitable for students who wish to acquire skills in epidemiology and biostatistics and wish to get involved with research projects.
In the first term, all students follow a common core pathway covering epidemiological methods, biostatistics, and infectious and chronic disease epidemiology.
In the second term, you either continue your studies in a common pathway or follow a specialised stream in Biostatistics, Environmental and Chronic Disease Epidemiology, or Infectious Disease Epidemiology.
The third term consists of a research project.
Upon completion of this course, students usually develop an academic career by beginning a PhD or move on to work for public health organisations, pharmaceutical companies or non-governmental agencies.
