The MPH with a concentration in Epidemiology fromUniversity of Maryland is a professional degree that prepares graduates to work in public health services as practitioners, researchers, administrators, and consultants.


Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of disease and injuries, and other health states in human populations. As the fundamental science of public health practice, epidemiology provides the conceptual and applied tools necessary for the study of public health problems.
