Detect and prevent illness and injury with an epidemiology degree

Epidemiologists uncover clues, discover patterns and use science to improve population health.

Epidemiologists discover how and why diseases and injuries occur in different groups of people, and how best to prepare for and reduce the impact on human health from timely public health threats such as natural disasters and climate change.

Epidemiology is foundational to public health and can help shape policy decisions, as well as improve clinical and medical research and preventive care.
