Public Health - 5-year Bachelor of Science and Master of Public Health in Epidemiology
The School of Public Health offers a 5-year degree program including a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology.
The 3+2 Bachelor of Science in Public Health/Masters in Public Health in Epidemiology degree program is more than a means to produce next-level Epidemiologists. It will deliver a graduate who can not only immediately impact the field of Epidemiology, but also deliver someone with a well-rounded understanding of the role that Epidemiology and Public Health play in medicine, nursing, allied health or other health professions.
The undergraduate component of the 3+2 program is based on a philosophy of health promotion and disease prevention, to improve the quality of life of individuals, families and communities. The graduate MPH component is a non-thesis degree program with culminating experiences as part of the degree requirements. Students will participate in a practicum demonstrating overall public health problem solving skills and complete a rigorous capstone class.
