Epidemiology is the scientific method used to track population health, to find cause of disease (and health) and to identify ways to prevent disease. It is often called the basic science of public health, but its principles extend to clinical research and practice. Epidemiologists are the medical detectives for populations. They solve puzzles about who gets diseases, what causes disease and how to prevent disease. The Master of Science (Epidemiology) course is taught by the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, which is in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. The School has strong programs of epidemiological research in many areas of importance for public health in Australia and globally. You will have the ability to undertake independent research in Epidemiology with the potential to progress to a PhD degree.
