The MS in Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology is a concentration of the MS in Epidemiology degree.  The program includes a required research field experience in which students will conduct research with outside governmental or non-governmental organizations. The field experience will provide our trainees with an invaluable learning experience as they apply their classroom skills in the real world, apprenticing under the close mentorship of public health practitioners.

The goal of the program is to train graduates to be highly successful in conducting research and research related activities (e.g. surveillance, risk assessment and policymaking) in academia, government, not-for-profit organizations, and industry.
