Curriculum Summary

PHD in Public Health Sciences Curriculum Summary

This in-house, semester-based program aims to develop and produce the body of knowledge in public health sciences via scientifically based researches in one of the two areas of interest i.e. Herbal Sciences / Biomolecular Technology. The students can develop their critical thinking skills through systematic literature reviews and thesis researches. The students can improve their oral and written communication skills via group discussion, conference presentation and manuscript publication.
