Solve critical disease-related challenges by analyzing trends in population health.

Are you interested in being a scientist who works to discover why and how groups of people are healthier or sicker at various times, places, and in specific contexts? Our epidemiology MPH program will train you to be an epidemiologist. Here you will learn to design epidemiologic investigations, analyze data, and translate findings so that they can be put into action to promote population-wide health. Our graduates work locally and globally in government, academic settings, within organizations, and in the biomedical industry.
