Become a medical detective, tackling cases that impact global health.

In the Master of Science (Epidemiology), use your powers of deduction, and some maths and data wizardry, to solve puzzles about who gets disease, what causes these diseases and how they can be prevented.

This course, which includes a major research project, will take your expertise in epidemiology to an advanced level, and prepare you for a career in research.

Learn with and from the best

You’ll study in the highly respected School of Population and Global Health, with unique access to a huge range of resources and research areas of importance for public health in Australia and globally.

Develop your skills with real-world problems

You’ll leave the course with a major research project to feature in your CV. Through the research project, with supervision from one of our highly regarded experts, you’ll be able to contribute your own knowledge to this broad field.

More than just technical skills

You’ll get plenty of practice working with numbers and other data, but you’ll also build an understanding of clinical research and practice, and develop your critical thinking, business and communication skills.

We know that soft skills are important too, which is why we include a subject on scientific communication, to ensure you can speak and write effectively about your research.
