Welcome to Epidemiology

Epidemiology is the newest program in the University of Delaware’s College of Health Sciences, a thriving academic unit of more than 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 130 faculty with outstanding research and teaching facilities. Epidemiology’s graduate degree programs are centered on the application of epidemiologic methods to research, teaching, and practice in areas focused on improving population health issues and reducing health disparities. The Epidemiology program also houses the Biostatistics Core, which serves as a vital resource for statistical expertise and support around research and teaching, and Epi-Assist, a student group that provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the field of public health and emergency management. The Epidemiology program also coordinates closely with the Partnership for Healthy Communities, facilitating student engagement in research and projects to improve the health and well-being of Delaware communities.

The Graduate Certificate in Epidemiology is a 12-credit program intended to support individuals who seek additional training in epidemiologic methods and the applied skills needed to address a broad range of health problems.  This certificate serves a need for education and preparation in epidemiology biostatistics skills within Delaware, across our region, and beyond. 

The MPH program is designed to prepare students for a career in public health in either applied (e.g., local, state or federal public health agencies) or research settings. Students are provided with comprehensive training in both population health principles and epidemiological methods and biostatistics to ensure they are proficient in the skills needed to successfully enter the public health workforce.

The PhD program provides students with advanced training in epidemiological methods and prepares them for careers in research, teaching, and applied public health. The program is designed to support students with an earned master’s degree and some experience in the public health workforce who seek additional training related to research methods and their application to population health.
