Online MS in Epidemiology
The Online MS in Epidemiology is designed to provide working professionals with the additional knowledge, skills, and credentials they need to advance in their career or pursue a new direction.
Online MS students gain a command of major concepts and techniques in epidemiology and a solid foundation in biostatistics. They acquire the skills needed to develop testable hypotheses and design research projects, from clinical trials to broad population studies.
The rigorous research degree program is designed for highly motivated professionals working in health departments, academia, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, or other healthcare settings.
Our new online platform uses learning management systems to deliver course content. Many of our courses offer asynchronous learning which allows students to view recorded lectures and complete work and take examinations from the comfort of home or wherever they may be.
The virtual Online MS gives students the freedom to learn at their own pace. Materials and lectures can be viewed repeatedly to reinforce concepts. Students also have the flexibility needed to manage a full-time job, other responsibilities, and earn their MS in Epidemiology at a world-class institution.
