EPIDEMIOLOGYAT THE UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE
Epidemiology programs at the University of Delaware include Masters of Public Health in Epidemiology and Doctorate of Philosophy in Epidemiology (in review.) Programs are centered on the application of epidemiologic methods to research and teaching in areas such as field epidemiology, cardiovascular disease epidemiology, injury epidemiology, and others. Founded in 2018, we are the newest program in a thriving academic unit of over 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 130 faculty with outstanding research and teaching facilities.
The Master of Public Health (MPH) in Health Policy and Management is designed to prepare students for a career in health policy in either applied (e.g., local, state or federal agencies) or research settings. By providing students with a comprehensive foundation of population health principles and their application to policy, the MPH in Health Policy and Management will ensure students are proficient in the skills needed to successfully enter the workforce.
The MPH in Health Policy and Management is a 42 credit graduate program that includes core courses shared across an interdisciplinary core as well as a required Applied Practice Experience and Integrative Learning Experience. Courses in population health policy are supplemented by courses in health policy and management content areas (e.g., program evaluation, financial management, conflict resolution, and disparities in health and healthcare) and public health electives from across the University of Delaware.
