Epidemiology & Community Health

The Division of Epidemiology & Community Health focuses on disease and health in various populations. Our faculty and students examine the distribution, cause and prevention of diseases, and how human behavior affects overall health.

The division offers MPH, MS and PhD degrees, as well as dual and joint degrees.

The work of epidemiologists spreads across sectors and areas of study, so our division and faculty are often partnering with other research entities and community organizations on public health research and interventions.

The Division’s Mission:
To improve the health of the public through state-of-the art teaching,translation of research into practice, and training of the next generation of public health professionals.

Research Ethics:
We are committed to protecting research participants, upholding ethical standards, and improving our practice at every step of our work.
