Epidemiology at Utrecht University

In the Master's in Epidemiology you acquire extensive knowledge and practical skills in epidemiologic research design and implementation, quantitative analysis and its application to human or veterinary medicine and public health. The knowledge and skills gained form a solid basis for health research and disease control programmes, including applications in developing countries.

This two year research programme comprises such core theoretical courses as 'Study Design' and 'Modern Methods in Data Analysis.' You choose from five specialisations: Clinical Epidemiology, Veterinary Epidemiology, Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases, Pharmacoepidemiology or Environmental & Occupational Epidemiology. You undertake a practical research project (which may be completed at an external company or research institute), that results in a publishable scientific paper. A final Master's thesis based on a literature review of a relevant topic completes the programme. Graduates may go on to a PhD programme, or a position as an epidemiologist in various settings. This programme is also offered in a 1.5 year post graduate format.

U/Select (Utrecht Selective Life Sciences Extracurricular Track) is the Life Sciences Honours Programme for selected students of the Graduate School of Life Sciences. It is a two-year extracurricular programme for excellent student who seek to broaden their horizon and who want to get more out of their Master’s programme.

The goals of U/Select are:

  • to be part of a community of excellent students in life sciences;
  • to be able to write a research proposal and execute this during your minor research abroad;
  • to have a better start position for the next step in your (study) career; and
  • to build your network beyond your own Master’s programme.


Utrecht Summer School

 

www.utrechtsummerschool.nl


Write your own PhD proposal
A maximum of ten students per year can follow the extracurricular honours trajectory, during which they will write PhD proposals and possibly obtain funding. The MSc Epidemiology has received a grant from NWO (The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research), giving five MSc Epidemiology students the opportunity to start their own fully funded PhD project directly after their MSc.

Young Innovators
Are you curious, entrepreneurial, intellectually versatile, socially responsible? Do you want to get more out of your Master's programme, and learn to work across disciplinary boundaries to both research and actively (co-)create innovative initiatives that will make the world a slightly better place? Then the Young Innovators honoursprogramme (15 EC) might be of interest to you!

Three core areas of research and innovation
The programme will focus on exploring and designing innovations in three areas:

 

 

  • Sustainable innovations in health
  • Sustainable innovations in the economy
  • Sustainable innovations in urban living


Think outside your discipline
These multifaceted themes demand the joint efforts of experts from the sciences and humanities alike. They require knowledge of energy, climate dynamics, food, technology, and health. But insights into the dynamics of societies, law and economics, languages and cultures, or history and philosophy are just as essential.
The issues transcend national and cultural borders. Therefore the programme aims at a substantial participation of international students and is taught in English.
