Course summary

This specialism will enable graduates to use real world evidence to lead on the design and delivery of evidence focused projects, particularly on data analysis, modelling, and interpretation of findings. Academic epidemiologists will typically explore research questions through conducting secondary analyses on existing data sets.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • The programme is taught by academics and practitioners from a wide variety of organisations and disciplines including Health Protection Scotland, environmental health, environmental protection, public health medicine, health economics and business/management.
  • Epidemiological studies form a significant proportion of the department’s research output that includes research on cancer surveillance, long-term conditions and occupational health. Epidemiology teaching at Glasgow enjoys high-level support and input from the National Health Service ensuring a close link to practice and employers.
  • The programme is multidiscplinary in focus attracting students with undergraduate degrees in nursing, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and other health related specialisms.
  • Public health has a central role in guiding health care practice, influencing health policy, protecting the public, and improving population health. If you work or intend to work in an organisation which has public health responsibilities or aims to improve population health then this Master of Public Health degree will be suited to you.
  • Public Health at the University was among the earliest academic fields to move towards a multidisciplinary range of programmes involving staff from a number of areas. Current disciplines represented include health promotion, health protection, sociology, psychology, epidemiology, statistics, and health economics.
  • Public health practitioners are employed in health services, academia, national and local government, the voluntary sector, as well as in international humanitarian relief. The MPH degree is recognised in most countries as an essential qualification for a career in public health.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Academic careers relating to each specialism may be pursued, including: research assistant, research associate, and lecturer. Similar research positions may be found with NGOs and, to a lesser extent, the private sector. Epidemiology specialism graduates will be suited to health service health surveillance in prevention positions. Epidemiologist and information scientist positions in the private sector will also be suitable.
