Epidemiology

A Master of Science (MSc) most commonly follows the completion of a Bachelor of Science degree and opens up a range of additional opportunities in numerous industries. This advanced degree can help you stand apart from other job applicants.

What is an MSc in Epidemiology? An MSc in Epidemiology is largely focused on the research foundations of the spread of diseases and emphasizes research methods and approaches. As a student, you will acquire knowledge of the epidemiological methods of medical research along with an understanding of healthcare evaluations and public health practices. You will learn through a combination of course study and hands-on research.

While an MSc is most frequently necessary in the participation in medical and academic research, other individuals in related fields, such as medical journalists and some government officers, can likely benefit from the course of study. Ultimately, the knowledge gained in this program can greatly improve your opportunities in the sector.

The cost of the program is largely dependent upon the institution and length of study. Most programs take one to two years depending on full-time or part-time attendance. As such, you will want to closely investigate multiple programs to determine if they suit your financial and academic needs.

There are a number of career opportunities available to students who graduate from these programs, and you can pursue a range of career paths. Graduates often find positions in community medicine, medical research, public health, field study, drug manufacturing, and government and nonprofit organizations. A degree will open up a number of doors for you.

Master of Science in Epidemiology. This programme equips graduates to provide leadership and technical support in public health in middle and low income countries. It covers a wide range of topics in public and global health, including key disciplinary skills in epidemiology and social science and applied topics such as disease control and programme management. Students can follow one of four pathways, which are distinguished by a defined combination of Core and Recommended modules and by a dissertation project on a topic appropriate to the pathway. Students have the opportunity of spending a period of time outside the UK undertaking a client-based or student-initiated dissertation project, which enables them to practise their problem-solving skills and specialist knowledge in a real setting. The project is often commissioned by health ministries, non-governmental organisations or international health agencies in middle and low income countries. This pathway is aimed at students who wish to understand international aspects of sexual and reproductive health (SRH). It aims to provide students with knowledge, skills and understanding needed to enable them to contribute to the strengthening of health systems in support of SRH (including maternal & neonatal health, MNH); facilitate the implementation and scale-up of good practice; and raise awareness amongst politicians, professionals and the public of the need for more effective use of knowledge and tools to impact on SRH indicators. Academic requirements: Open to graduates of health-related disciplines, including medicine, with normally two years professional experience working in the health system at district, regional or national level, in less developed countries.
