About

The Master of Public Health in Epidemiology in Temple University’s College of Public Health prepares students for practice- and research-oriented careers in epidemiology. 

Overview

Students of the Epidemiology program at Temple University learn to use rigorous epidemiologic methods and appropriate analyses to answer pressing research questions related to the public’s health. The master’s degree program will prepare you as a public health professional with expertise in:

  • study design and appropriate data analyses that can be used to accurately quantify and assess population-based, health-related outcomes;
  • application of modern statistical computing software, such as SAS and R, and statistical methods for large and complex data sets in public health;
  • data management of health-related cross-sectional, experimental, longitudinal and survey data; and
  • real-world problem solving through experiential training.

Epidemiology is considered the foundational science of public health—it allows us to identify and understand the descriptive characteristics, determinants and risk factors that influence the public’s health. Students in the Epidemiology MPH examine complex global and local challenges related to chronic and infectious diseases; train to understand determinants of, and methodological issues in, cancer and social epidemiology; and apply their knowledge and skills to develop projects that seek to answer timely research questions in community settings.

Graduates with an M.P.H. in Epidemiology have positions in a wide range of health-related settings, including state and local public health departments, community-based organizations, voluntary health agencies, health maintenance organizations, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, clinics, schools, and public health-related work sites.
