Where can a Master of Infectious Diseases Intelligence Program take me?

The ability to design and implement a multidisciplinary, public health approach to infectious diseases control is becoming increasingly important, especially in a rapidly changing global landscape, which includes climate change, rapid urbanisation, intensive agricultural and animal husbandry practices, and antibiotic resistance.

The Master of Infectious Diseases Intelligence degree builds on principles of epidemiology and public health in an era of new and emerging infectious disease threats.

Graduates will be equipped with the specialised skills needed for professional practice in control of infectious diseases and emergencies across a range of contexts including:

  • ministries and departments of health
  • government organisations
  • international health organisations like WHO
  • non-government and voluntary organisations
  • primary care and community healthcare services in both public and private sectors
