New as of 2011 - 2012: Master of Science in Biostatistics and Epidemiology
The Cyprus International Institute for Environmental and Public Health in association with Harvard School of Public Health is proud to introduce its new program - a one-year Master of Science in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. This new program will include coursework on the theoretical underpinnings, computational methods, and practical implementation of modern approaches in epidemiology and biostatistics. It is intended to be useful for doctors and nurses interested in clinical effectiveness, for mathematicians and statisticians responsible for disease monitoring and surveillance, and for aspiring young academics hoping to advance understanding of diseases and development of new methodologies in these fields. Both MS programs (the existing MS in Environmental Health and the new MS in Epidemiology and Biostatistics) are taught in English and rely upon an integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum taught by distinguished faculty from Harvard University, Cyprus University of Technology, and other leading schools of public health/environmental science. Each program involves 96 ECTS credits (60 US course credits) and can be completed either in one academic year (September through July) or on a half-time basis over a period of two academic years. The class sizes are small (twenty to twenty-five students) to facilitate individualized teaching and mentoring, thus the programs are highly selective. Applications are accepted beginning on January 17, 2012 and there are two application deadlines - March 30, 2012 (early admissions) and May 18, 2012 (late admissions). Complete applications which are received by the March 30 deadline will be given first priority for scholarships. For more information on these MS programs please click here.
