The Master of Science in Epidemiology provides students with a fundamental grounding in the principles of epidemiology and its companion discipline, biostatistics (which includes training in statistical computing), with an emphasis on the application of these disciplines to public health research. The program has a structured curriculum and thesis requirement, both of which emphasize the development of quantitative research skills and the application of these skills to real-world public health problems. The program is designed primarily for health care clinicians interested in research careers. Exceptional students with other backgrounds may be considered. Graduates of the program assume research-oriented positions in academic settings, government, or private industries.
