Epidemiology

Students gain advanced knowledge of chronic and infectious disease; zoonoses and food-borne disease; nutritional, occupational, reproductive and wildlife epidemiology; and the development of new epidemiologic and biostatistical methods. Students graduate with the qualitative and quantitative skills necessary for professional research and teaching in the concepts and methods in biology, economics, mathematics and statistics with the goals of understanding the distribution and determinants of disease, injury, and impaired productivity in populations and recommending actions for prevention or control.
