The Master of Epidemiology provides a solid foundation in epidemiological and analytical skills for those who aim to develop their understanding of the epidemiological and biostatistical theory and methods that underpin epidemiological practice and research, build competence in critical appraisal, and develop core skills for research and practice in epidemiology. The course combines five compulsory subjects in epidemiology and biostatistics and one elective subject in epidemiology or biostatistics, together with a research project. The project may involve a student analysing existing data, performing a systematic review or developing a research protocol, allowing further development in a specialty interest area of the student's choice according to methods, disease groups and/or population setting.
The core and elective subjects are offered in a range of delivery modes (full semester classroom, 1/2 semester workshop, intensives). Students who have completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Epidemiology or equivalent may seek exemption from core subjects and complete 100 points combining both a research report and elective subjects.
