Master of Epidemiology overview

The Master of Epidemiology is for students more seasoned in the field, testing their bio-statistical and methodological prowess to the fullest. As such, the requirements for entry into these courses are quite strict.

Employment options

Options become much wider upon completing the Master of Epidemiology, as graduates become qualified to work as biostatisticians and all the numerous branches epidemiology has to offer. Universities like Emory welcome graduates from these courses.

Scholarships and funding

General scholarships are often the best source of funding for this degree, similar to the certificates and diplomas within this specialisation. Like with those scholarships the requirements are often varied and specific. For example, the Rotary Club of Sydney offers scholarships to postgraduate students, but requires those students be Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders who are also under financial hardship.

Prerequisites and selection process

In addition to holding an approved degree with 5 GPA at minimum, students must pass one of several entry requirements. Courses hosted by the University of Queensland demand the passing of a tertiary quantitative research methods course with 5 GPA minimum, demonstrable written contribution to the field or the word of a referee to gain entry. Similar degrees with a more specific focus like the Master of Clinical Epidemiology from the University of Newcastle are slightly more stringent because they do not accept prospective students holding unrelated bachelor degrees.
