PhD in Public Health Sciences in Epidemiology

Admission Requirements

Students who have satisfactorily completed the M.S. degree in epidemiology are eligible for the Ph.D. specialization in epidemiology. Students with a master’s degree in a related discipline or an advanced degree (for example, M.D., Ph.D., D.O.) may be accepted also pending evaluation of appropriate training, experience, and coursework.

Previous coursework in mathematics and/or statistics and biological or health sciences (for example, biology, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, microbiology) is strongly recommended.

Students completing the M.Sc. in clinical investigation sciences or MPH with an epidemiology specialization may be required to complete additional coursework to be accepted into the epidemiology Ph.D. specialization.
