This programme focuses on practical skills and a thorough understanding of how to apply molecular biology to One Health - an emerging discipline which promotes collaboration between specialists in the public, animal and environmental/ecosystems health sectors.
The International One Health Initiative has defined One Health as: “the integrative effort of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment. Together, the three make up the One Health triad, and the health of each is inextricably connected to the others in the triad”.
Duration of programme
The degree is offered on full-time or part time basis. The duration and registration period for full time MSc One Health Molecular Biology programme is 2 years. The first year comprise of coursework and the second year shall be devoted to research and dissertation work.
The duration and registration period for part-time MSc One Health Molecular Biology programme will be 3 years. The first 2 years shall comprise of coursework and the final year shall be devoted to research and dissertation work.
