Comprehensive academic advising throughout your time in the program will help you to develop a course map to best meet your professional learning goals with respect to public health methods, frameworks, and content depth.

Below is a sample course map for Fall admits to help guide you through the Epidemiology & Biostatistics Concentration curriculum requirements. The Epidemiology & Biostatistics Concentration demands specific skill building and has a more prescribed course map than other program options.

Do you have questions about your course map and how it aligns with your professional and learning goals? Please reach out to Dr. Sandi McCoy, Faculty Lead for the Epidemiology & Biostatistics Concentration.
