Epidemiology

Students will engage in a course of study designed to deepen their understanding and application of advanced data analytic techniques and research methodology. Students are required to take at least three courses in advanced data analysis and research methodology. In addition, they will identify a specialization area (e.g. chronic disease epi, mental health epi, etc.) and take a minimum of two courses in this specialization area.
