Program Description:

The epidemiology concentration offers a focus either in general epidemiology, global infectious diseases (in collaboration with our Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases), or molecular epidemiology (in collaboration with our Genetics Department). Students will learn how to design, conduct and analyze clinical investigations and research studies in public health. Students with strong lifescience backgrounds (pre med studies, microbiology, molecular biology, and genetics) are preferred for this concentration. Courses include molecular epidemiology, epidemiology of chronic diseases and advanced biostatistical methods. Electives may be chosen from the College of Public Health and from across the UGA campus. The program also requires an internship.
