The Master of Science in Epidemiology provides intensive education and training in the concepts and methods of epidemiology and biostatistics for those interested in care
TheMaster of Science in Epidemiology provides intensive education and training in the concepts and methods of epidemiology and biostatistics for those interested in careers in research on the determinants of health and disease in populations. The program differs from the MPH in the level of depth and rigorous focus on skills needed for epidemiologic research. It is targeted at health professionals seeking more intensive training in research and provides a pathway to the doctoral degree in epidemiology.
The Department of Epidemiology and Population Health seeks to identify the determinants of health, disease, disability, and death in populations for the purposes of promotion, control, and prevention. As a core discipline for public health, it provides much of the information necessary to develop, implement and evaluate public health intervention, policy and law. The Department of Epidemiology and Population Health offers an MPH concentration and MS and Ph.D. degrees in Epidemiology. The department is also planning a Ph.D. concentration in Outcomes Research....

MSc Infection Control
The MSc Infection Control online has been designed for nurses and other health professionals who have an infection control role in their workplace but is open to anyone with an interest in this area. The course aligns with the framework of competencies outlined by the Infection Prevention Society and will develop your expertise in several key areas of best practice. Delivered as an online course, the MSc Infection Control course gives you the flexibility to study whilst you continue to work full-time. It also allows you to interact with other infection control specialists spread throughout the UK and internationally.
Why study this subject?
The demand for Infection Control courses has increased in recent years due to super-bug and contagious illness outbreaks such as SMRA, swine flu and Ebola highlighting the need for more effective infection control. The fundamental underpinning of the MSc is that prevention is better than the cure and it is this mentality that will hopefully make outbreaks a thing of the past....

The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Georgetown University offers a Master of Science degree in Epidemiology, a core discipline in public health. Epidemiology is the study (scientific, systematic, and data-driven) of the distribution (frequency, pattern) and determinants (causes, risk factors) of health-related states and events (not just diseases) in specified populations (neighborhood, school, city, state, country, global). The epidemiology program addresses health disparities as a crosscutting theme at the local, national, and global levels via didactic training, practicums, and applied ‘hands-on’ research leading to the written thesis.
The M.S. in Epidemiology program is a 4-semester program requiring each student to complete 34 credit hours. These 34 credit hours are comprised of 22 credits of core courses, and at least 12 credits in concentration-specific courses, inclusive of a thesis....

The M.Sc. in Epidemiology is unique in Flanders. The programme combines both theoretical and practical knowledge. Apart from lectures you will also be offered active forms of training. In addition you will have lab work, an internship and a thesis to complete.
At the end of your studies, you will be able to conduct independent epidemiological research and take up an advisory and policy-making role within the healthcare sector. As an epidemiologist, you will respond to scientific problems that arise from the (clinical) doctor-patient relationship. You are indispensible to the process of development, conduct and analysis of applied medical scientific research. Besides this, your methodological concepts help in the development of public health policy....

The MSc Immunology of Infectious Diseases aims to provide advanced theoretical knowledge and practical training in the immunology of infectious diseases through a comprehensive range of teaching and research methods. It equips students with the range of specialized knowledge and skills in applying scientific concepts, evaluating scientific data and carrying out modern immunological techniques.
This is facilitated by the unique mix of interests in immunology, molecular biology, virology, bacteriology, parasitology, mycology and clinical medicine at the School. Infectious diseases represent an increasingly important cause of human morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Vaccine development is thus of great importance in terms of global health. In parallel with this growth, there has been a dramatic increase in studies to identify the innate, humoral or cellular immunological mechanisms which confer immunity to pathogenic viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. As a result, increasing numbers of scientists, clinicians, and veterinarians wish to develop their knowledge and skills in these areas....
