MPH Epidemiology Option

As an MPH student, you'll learn how to use your skills in applied settings in health departments, non-governmental agencies or CDC or WHO field programs.

The program can also prepare you for doctoral training in epidemiology or compliment other doctoral or professional training.

Alumna Natalie Linton, MPH '15, is one such student. She participated in a prestigious applied epidemiology fellowship where she gained experience in outbreak investigations and how to work with various community partners.

When you complete the program, you will join Natalie and more than 26,000 change-makers and go-getters we affectionately call alumni to take on some of the world's greatest health challenges.
