What will I learn?
RUSVM is committed to a One Health, transdisciplinary approach to understanding and sustainably reducing the burden of zoonoses. Zoonoses and other diseases affecting livestock production and health can have serious impacts on the economic growth, health and food security and alleviation of poverty in tropical and resource constrained countries.
The course-based Master of Science by Coursework in One Health (MSc One Health) degree program is designed to equip veterinarians, animal scientists, medical and biological scientists with an in-depth understanding of the principles of, and issues associated with, One Health.
Students will have the opportunity to explore the complex interplay of altered environments and infectious diseases as an increasing threat to agriculture, public health and endangered/threatened species, on a global basis.
The MSc One Health is designed to provide the skills and preparation needed for careers in a broad range of environments. The flexible program of study has particular strengths in:
Tropical animal health and diseases
The intersection of animal health and human health
Animal health program management
Animal disease investigation
Research and diagnostic methods
The interface between domestic animals and wildlife
Delivery of veterinary services
Upon successful completion of the degree program, the student will have gained knowledge, research skills and research experience in topics relevant to the broad field of One Health. The program provides graduates the background and experience to assess, investigate and manage animal health and zoonotic disease risks, to design and execute targeted research in animal health, and to manage veterinary intervention in the control and prevention of animal disease. Within the program the student will have had the opportunity to focus on an area of interest, such as area disease control, vector borne diseases, zoonotic infections or conservation medicine.
Our program is designed to provide students with intellectual skills in scientific assessment and research methodology, as well as practical skills in communication, organization and scientific writing.
