Plant Breeding plays an important role in the development of plant varieties for food, feed and industrial uses. New varieties have to meet current demands regarding yield, disease resistance, quality characteristics, salt or drought tolerance and suitability for sustainable plant production systems. Read more

Plant Breeding plays an important role in the development of plant varieties for food, feed and industrial uses. New varieties have to meet current demands regarding yield, disease resistance, quality characteristics, salt or drought tolerance and suitability for sustainable plant production systems. Plant Breeding involves a variety of aspects, ranging from the molecular level to the population level and requires knowledge on the physiology, ecology and genetics of cultivated plants.

The use of various molecular techniques contributes enormously to the rapid identification of genes for natural resistance and is essential for accelerating the selection process by marker-assisted breeding.

Study programme

This online master's specialisation is designed as a part-time study. The approximate workload is 20 hours per week and gives the student the flexibility to combine work and study. The programme is therefore also suitable for employees who want to continue their education in the sense of life-long-learning.

The general structure is a 2 year part time course-programme followed by a tailor-made internship and master's thesis agreement of 1 or 2 years. Read more about the programme.

Your future career

Graduates from the master's Plant Sciences have excellent career prospects and most of them receive job offers before graduation. They are university trained professionals who are able to contribute to the sustainable development of plant production at various integration levels based on their knowledge of fundamental and applied plant sciences and their interdisciplinary approach.

Graduates with a research focus are employed at universities, research institutes and plant breeding or agribusiness companies. Other job opportunities are in management, policy, consultancy and communication in agribusiness and (non-) governmental organisations. Read more stories of Wageningen University & Research graduates.

Do you see yourself in a future career as an epidemiologist and clinical researcher? Join our programme, sign up!

APPLIED RESEARCH AT THE INTERSECTION OF DATA AND MEDICINE

The Master’s programme Epidemiology is an excellent opportunity if you have a strong interest in applied medical or biomedical research, as well as human or veterinary medicine. Examine the distribution and determinants of health and morbidity in specific populations. This scientific discipline is increasingly in demand in clinical research, industry and policymaking.

The Master’s programme in Epidemiology is also offered on postgraduate level. Choose between face-to-face and online education, so students in various stages of their careers can opt for a suitable study programme.

WHY YOU SHOULD STUDY EPIDEMIOLOGY AT UTRECHT UNIVERSITY

  • Learn to operate as an epidemiologist and clinical researcher in basic epidemiological and statistical courses and during your own research project.
  • Choose your own specialization such as Clinical Epidemiology, Infectious Diseases Epidemiology, Pharmacoepidemiology, Medical Statistics, Environmental & Occupational Epidemiology or Veterinary Epidemiology. Grab the opportunity to enhance and broaden your knowledge through additional topic-specific courses, like Fundamentals in Global Health and Cardiovascular Epidemiology.
  • Prepare for a career in research. We offer a true research Master's, with a practical approach of epidemiological research design. Starting from the clinical question instead of a theoretical approach is unique in the Netherlands as well as internationally.
  • Study and work at the Utrecht University, the University Medical Center Utrecht and the Julius Center, which is one of the most prestigious institutions worldwide in the field of clinical epidemiology and unique in its diversity.
  • The Master’s programme Epidemiology has intensive collaboration with research institutes throughout the world, allowing you to gain valuable experience abroad.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN HEALTH CARE

With evidence-based medicine setting new standards, highly trained academic specialists are needed for the design, data collection, analysis and interpretation of epidemiological and health research. You can become an expert in this growing field by joining our globally oriented postgraduate programme. We offer both a 1.5 year face-to-face full-time programme in Utrecht and a 3-5 year online part-time programme through Elevate. The content of both programmes is similar, the type of education is different.

APPLIED RESEARCH AT THE INTERSECTION OF DATA AND MEDICINE

The aim of our programme is to provide you with extensive knowledge and practical skills in patient-oriented research design, implementation, quantitative analysis and its application to human or veterinary medicine and public health. The gained knowledge and skills form a solid basis for health research and disease control programs, including application in low and lower-middle income countries. This scientific discipline is increasingly in demand in research, industry and policymaking.

The Epidemiology postgraduate programme is accessible and highly suitable for applicants who already have a medical or biomedical Master’s degree, such as physicians, veterinarians and pharmacists. Note that this postgraduate programme is not state funded and that it is not eligible for study financing from the Dutch student grant and loans systems. Please contact Elevate for more information about the tuition fee.
