The Master of Science (MS) degree is offered by the Departments of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Sociomedical Sciences.
While the primary focus of the MS curriculum is specialized knowledge, the Mailman School’s emphasis on interdisciplinary education ensures that students also gain a broad public health perspective that facilitates successful careers. Typical applicants are people with science backgrounds and/or experience in health, medicine, or science-related fields.
The Department offers 5 MS programs:
MS students in Epidemiology select one of two program options, which differ only in their timeframe and schedule. The new Executive MS program is meant for working professionals and meets for one long weekend a month for 22 months.
- Sociomedical Sciences
MS students in Sociomedical Sciences focus on the History and Ethics of Public Health. Visit the Sociomedical Sciences MS program page for more information.
