Register for Open House/Pizza Night

The Master of Science in Epidemiology is designed to provide the common methodological foundation from which to conduct research across diverse health-related areas. Whilst on the program students will have the opportunity to specialize in one of three streams of study within the Master of Science in Epidemiology degree, although it is not mandatory to do so. These streams correspond to the research strengths of the Department's faculty: Epidemiology and Population Health; Health Services and Policy Research; and Clinical Epidemiology. Students graduate from the program with an ability to: communicate scientifically; describe trends and patterns of disease incidence and prevalence; critically review scientific literature related to community health and epidemiology; apply epidemiological methods in the design of research; collect, analyze, and interpret heath data; conduct a study; and write and defend a thesis.
