Dual Degree Programs in Public Health Data Sciences

Dual Degree Programs in Public Health Data Science


We offer the opportunity to complete a dual degree with the University of Bordeaux in France. These programs in Population Health Methods and Data Sciences, offer degrees in Public Health Data Science (MSc), or Digital Public Health (PhD) jointly with Epidemiology (MSc and PhD), Biostatistics (MSc and PhD), or Public Health (MScPH), at McGill.

The MSc requires a first year at McGill and includes a period (4 -12 months minimum depending on degree program and internship) of coursework, and international research and practice, in public health data science. The training will cover project design to real life health data analysis and communication of results. With multidisciplinary skills in epidemiology, informatics, and statistics, the MSc will provide you with sound knowledge about strengths and limitations of digital technologies and their use in public health research and practice. The PhD will build on this foundation and requires a first year at McGill and at least one year minimum at Bordeaux University, with the remaining two years at one and/or the other institution according to the student’s thesis project.
