Population Health Data Science

  • Population Health Data Science



Population Health Data Science explores the relationships between the physical environment and people’s health. This major will prepare you to analyse data using geospatial information science (GIS) and help find patterns and potential solutions to health problems affecting our society.

The applications for geomapping health data are hugely varied; from measuring air quality in dense urban areas, to finding the source of water pollution in our rivers, to calculating traffic accident high-risk zones, or mapping disease outbreak in highly populated cities.

You will be able to examine data for use in large-scale clinical data research, or in public health systems and policy.
