Profile of Graduates
Profiles of Epidemiology Masters are as follows:
Based on the analysis of needs, policies, benchmarks and professional organizations, as well as higher education institutions for public health, the formulation of the Epidemiology Graduate Program learning outcomes is as follows:
1. Able to develop epidemiology (covering principles, methods and applications) in the scientific field and the professional practice of epidemiology through research (C3), so as to create innovative and tested works (C6) (ELO-1)
2. Able to resolve scientific and health issues through inter- or multidisciplinary approach (C6) (ELO-2)
3. Able to manage research and development that is beneficial to the community and the epidemiological science to have national and international recognitions (C6) (ELO-3)
Based on the Learning Outcomes, it is divided into sub-learning outcomes and then classified into courses. An outline of the course structure can be seen below.
