About Veterinary Public Health
Masters degrees in Veterinary Public Health involve advanced study of the ways in which the spread of disease from animals to human can be prevented.
Similar postgraduate specialisms include Animal Pathology, Animal Health and Epidemiology, while entry requirements usually involve an undergraduate degree in a related biological or animal science.
A Masters in Veterinary Public Health combines approaches and methodologies from several different fields, giving you an excellent range of applicable skills. For example, you might explore the relationship between zoonotic disease and industrial agricultural practices, or look at the microbial risks associated with consumption of animal products.
Another approach would be to look at environment policy, assessing its impact on the health of animals and the general public alike. This could mean studying legislation alongside research and practice-based science.
Postgraduate career options are varied, including roles with governmental agencies, regulatory bodies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
