About

The MS in Epidemiology is a research degree designed to provide an understanding of epidemiologic concepts, theories and methodology. Adequate understanding of human diseases, including their natural history, etiology, pathogenesis, and prevention or control, may require moderate or advanced preparation in related laboratory or environmental sciences. Students are encouraged to draw upon outside resources (academic, governmental, clinical, etc.) in order to acquire knowledge and skills requisite to their specific educational goals. The MS program offers students the opportunity to prepare themselves for intermediate or higher positions in government, or private health agencies, or in research projects with an epidemiologic orientation.
