The master's thesis is the final part of the master's degree.

The Chair of Epidemiology (formerly a chair at the LMU Munich) not only supervises Master's students from the Epidemiology and Public Health courses at the LMU, but also students from various related areas with their Master's thesis.

If you are interested in a master's thesis supervision, please contact us!
