The Master of Public Health (MPH) in Epidemiology is designed to prepare students for a career in public health in either local, state or federal public health agencies or research settings. By providing students with a comprehensive foundation of population health principles, epidemiological methods and biostatistics, and study design, the MPH in Epidemiology will ensure students are proficient in the skills needed to successfully enter the public health workforce.

The MPH in Epidemiology is a 42 credit graduate program that includes courses shared across an interdisciplinary core as well as a required Applied Practice Experience and Integrative Learning Experience. Courses in epidemiologic methods and biostatistics are supplemented by courses in epidemiology content areas (e.g., cancer, disaster, public health surveillance) and public health electives from across the University of Delaware.

Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college of university in a related discipline with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher. Official GRE scores from within the past 5 years.
