This track provides advanced studies in epidemiology and its application within public health. Students will acquire in-depth knowledge of epidemiological and statistical methods, data acquisition and management, and methods for outcome assessment of public health interventions and policy. The focus is on applied epidemiology in order to develop the skills to describe, analyse and reflect upon a variety of public health issues and to critically review epidemiological studies.
Graduates are well prepared for several positions in the private and public sectors, particularly authorities responsible for environmental and health issues, international work, or to proceed with further research and education.
