About

The knowledge and skills of epidemiology and biostatistics are crucial for many careers in public health research including disease control and prevention, health care delivery, and health management.  

Overview

The epidemiology and biostatistics emphasis area provides epidemiologic knowledge about the distribution and determinants of disease and other health-related conditions in human populations, and develops the methodological and analytical skills for study design and analysis of data.  Graduates are qualified for health service or research positions in local health departments, hospitals, nursing homes, academic institutions, industries, and government agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The Department of Public Health has an academic partnership with the Department of Anthropology for students pursuing both an MPH and an MA degree. Students in the MPH Program with an emphasis area in Epidemiology/Biostatistics are eligible to apply for admission into the MPH and the MA Programs simultaneously.  Students must apply and meet the admission criteria of both the MPH and MA programs in the same semester.
