Epidemiology and Biostatistics is all about Statistical Inferences and Modelling. As well as Study Designs.
However, I think you will be really fine; it's not really that hard and in my class (Epidemiology and Biostatistics department at UI) we have a lot of people from Microbiology and other people that are not fan of mathematics but are still doing just fine.
So go ahead and apply!!!!

Good day, Please am seeking for professional advice from u guys on which of the mentioned Courses is lucrative with job opportunities. I have a BSc in Zoology, about to apply for Masters in UI. Please I need your candid advice.
thanks

I really can't say for sure... I want to believe there are job opportunities for all.
However you can consider the MPH in Environmental health Sciences at UI.
Owk thanks, I have more interest in statistics though . Will they accept me with my background? I have few months experience in M & E plus Data entry for WHO

Do you mean if Environmental Health Science will accept you? Well yes of course.
For the programs at UI faculty of public health in university college hospital, there is going to be English proficiency test which if you meet the cut off point you will be invited for the departmental test and then interview.
I mean Biostatistics

If I had seen this earlier, I would have been more circumspect in appling for MSc in environmental nd public health in uniben, thought its same with MPH.

I'm sure they won't give you admission. MSc biostatistics is restricted to those with statistics, mathematics, and computer science alone.

good morning, pls i am willing to apply for UI PG study in MPH in the department of Epidemiology and medical statistics,and the proposed programme is M.P.H in field Epidemiology with the field of interest as Epidemiology. I have B.sc Microbiology, how realistic is this before i continue with my application or which other programme do you think goes in line with my undergraduate field.
thanks, i'll be waiting for your reply

You are getting it the wrong way sir!
Here the department name is Epidemiology and Medical Statistics. Then the various programmes and or Field of interest are
Msc Epidemiology
Msc Biostatistics
Msc Epidemiology and Biostatistics
MPH Field Epidemiology
Medical Demography (am not sure if it's Msc or MPH).

So choose correctly. ..
Your Bsc Microbiology can get you any of the above programmes except for Medical Demography and Biostatistics which am not very sure.

thanks for the reply, this is the picture of what i'm talking about. that means i'm on the right path?
