About

Students of Epidemiology at Drexel University learn and apply quantitative approaches to characterize, monitor, and understand the health of populations.

Overview

Students gain experience in the design of epidemiologic studies and in the analysis of data. Epidemiology and Biostatistics faculty focus on a range of analytic approaches and their application to a spectrum of topics including social inequalities in health, neighborhood differences in health, chronic and infectious disease epidemiology, the epidemiology of health across life stages, nutrition, physical activity and obesity, and clinical research.

Key facts:

Career paths in epidemiology often involve data collection, analyses, and interpretation to inform policy and practice in governmental, private, nonprofit, academic, and healthcare settings. Epidemiology graduates may also manage research studies that lead to the changes in decision making in public health. Epidemiology is offered at Drexel University.

Programme Structure

  • This format ensures that course development is shaped by content/disciplinary experts and includes the breadth and depth of relevant skills that all MPH graduates will need regardless of their chosen discipline.
