The two-year Master of Science (MS) in Epidemiology is a research degree, usually undertaken by individuals who hold another graduate or professional degree in a related discipline such as MD, DDS, DO, MSN, or PhD. The program is designed to provide trainees with a command of major concepts and techniques in epidemiology as well as a solid foundation in biostatistics. Students learn the skills necessary to develop testable hypotheses and design research proj- ects, from clinical trials to broad population studies. Graduates of the program often go on to become independent researchers.
