Public Health (Epidemiology) students will develop skills in study design and research methodology while gaining knowledge of the social and lifestyle determinants that affect health. The graduate will leave with extensive training in epidemiologic methods that will enable them to improve public health through excellence in research and practice.
Graduates with epidemiology degrees are likely to get hired soon after graduation. Emergent infectious diseases and the need to improve health of an aging nation require an understanding of the epidemiology of both infectious and chronic diseases. Moreover, as the emphasis of obesity reduction and other lifestyle related health issues continues to increase, there are special opportunities for epidemiologists who are familiar with health maintenance and wellness strategies. The relationships that epidemiologists identify among healthy lifestyles and positive outcomes will shape the wellness programs of the future. Epidemiology is a field that often has international opportunities, even for recent graduates.
Epidemiologists are everywhere and hold a variety of job titles. Many have learned the discipline on the job so candidates with formal training will have a competitive edge in the marketplace. The following is a list (not by any means exhaustive) of possible job settings:
- State, county and city health agencies
- Environmental consulting companies
- Private corporations
- Federal government
- International organizations
- Nonprofit organizations
- Academia (colleges and universities)
