Master of Public Health - Epidemiology
The School of Public Health at The University of Memphis offers a CEPH-accredited MPH degree with a concentration in Epidemiology. The online MPH has the same format as the on-campus program, requiring 42 credit hours that include completion of an applied practical experience and either a master’s project or thesis. The Epidemiology curriculum focuses on epidemiologic methods and research skills such as study design, data collection methods, analysis, and interpretation and reporting of data. The program prepares graduates for positions in health systems, public health settings, and governmental agencies, to identify risk factors for disease, factors that determine the distribution of health and disease in human populations, and to aid in planning and evaluating the effectiveness of public health programs.
