Masters degrees in Pathology examine the nature, causes and development of human diseases. They also explore the mechanisms of disease infestation and transfer.
Related subjects include Molecular Pathology and Cellular Pathology. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Medicine or Biology.
Pathology explores a broad range of diseases, the ways in which they are spread and the levels at which they affect the human body. This includes the analysis of molecular and cellular pathology, as well as the vectors – insects, parasites, fungi and dust particles, to give a few examples – that carry pathogens.
Areas of specialisation range from the detection and prevention of the spread of STIs (sexually transmitted infections), the treatment and prevention of cancer, through to the reduction of exposure to vectors.
Some courses may also incorporate elements of biostatistics and stratified medicine, identifying subgroups of patients with distinct mechanisms of a disease, and their responses to different kinds of treatment.
Training in this field can lead to careers across many industries, including traditional routes into medicine, clinical practice and pharmacology. You might also explore humanitarian aid on behalf of charities and government bodies.
