Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of disease in human and animal populations. Diseases are not randomly distributed in populations and there are certain risk factors that influence diseases such as genetics and environmental elements. Epidemiologists work around the world studying diseases, outbreaks and trends in populations to help prevent and control diseases.
This program provides a broad background in theoretical and quantitative epidemiology as well as substantive expertise related to the student's research topic.
