The online Certificate in Epidemiology, available as a standalone graduate certificate or as a set of electives within the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredited Master of Public Health program, equips students to apply biostatistical and research methods to uncover the patterns, causes and effects of disease, and ultimately help solve public health issues.
