The MSc Community Health and Epidemiology (CH&E) program emphasizes knowledge, analytical skills and formal evaluative methods with application to disease prevention, health promotion and assessment of community health service and system needs.
The program requires a minimum of five Core Classes, three Elective Classes and a Thesis. The five required classes are: Community Health Principles; Epidemiology Principles; Research Methods in Community Health & Epidemiology; Principles of Biostatistics; and Community Health Services Systems.
The Master's Thesis is a major part of the MSc CH&E program. A thesis may include the design and execution of an applied research project in the field of community health and epidemiology. Full-time students will ordinarily complete their thesis during their second year in the MSc program.
