Connecting health of humans, animals and the environment

One Health recognises that health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment and vice versa. That is why its approach in research is interdisciplinary and collaborates between physicians, veterinarians, epidemiologists, microbiologists and ecologists. One Health professionals and students assess public health threats by conducting research about how and why diseases spread among people, animals, and the environment. Are you ready to help prevent infectious and non-infectious diseases related to the cohabitation of our world?  

A seamless integration of multiple disciplines

There is a need for interdisciplinary professionals and researchers who understand the principles of human, veterinary and environmental health risks and the interrelations. When you are motivated to become a researcher at the interface between humans, animals and the environment, this Master’s programme should be a perfect fit. You get to integrate concepts from human and veterinary epidemiology, ecology and population dynamics, microbiology and toxicology.
