Program Overview

The Master of Science (MS) in Epidemiology is a degree program for students who want to gain additional theoretical and applied knowledge, as well as the skills and credentials they need to advance in their career tracks. This program is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in epidemiology and biostatistics.  Specifically, there will be an emphasis on developing answerable clinical and research questions, generating testable hypotheses and applying sound study designs for research projects. This program will be suitable for both recent college graduates and professionals working in academia or in a clinical setting, or at healthcare companies, health departments, federal agencies, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, or in various other healthcare settings. 

The MS in Epidemiology will focus on recruiting and training students who would like to increase their applied epidemiology knowledge, build research methodology and statistical skill sets, and earn an advanced degree, without disrupting their career. Therefore, our primary target population will include physicians, healthcare administrators, project directors and other healthcare professionals.

The program requires 36 total credit hours, including five research capstone course credit hours.  The program should take four semesters to complete and is delivered in an online format.
