Graduate Programs

Our Master of Science (MSc) and Doctoral (PhD) graduate programs in epidemiology and public health cover diverse areas, including quantitative and clinical epidemiology, applications of epidemiology in veterinary public health and food safety, the relationship between the environment and human and animal health (agroecosystem health), and public health interventions, policy, and evaluation.

We offer a research focused thesis-based MSc in a number of applied areas, a Master in Public Health with a practicum component, as well as PhD programs in the fields of Epidemiology and Public Health. We also offer a coursework MSc program in epidemiology that focuses on general epidemiologic principles or a coursework MSc program in epidemiology that focuses on clinical trials with a practicum component. The coursework MSc program in public health will have students explore ways to improve population health. In addition, we have a clinical doctorate degree, the Doctor of Veterinary Science (DVSc), which offers training in theriogenology, swine health management, or ruminant health management.

Our faculty provide a positive atmosphere within which you can pursue your educational goals. Our programs are rigorous, and experience has shown that they provide an excellent basis for future careers in animal and human health. We hope you enjoy learning more about us.

A faculty advisor is required for both the course-based and thesis-based programs before we can move an application forward. Prospective students are encouraged to contact faculty (either before or soon after submitting an application) to ask them if they are willing to take them on as a graduate student. Program space may be limited by faculty availability.
