Minor in Epidemiology
About the Minor
Never before has disease prevention and health promotion been more important, as evidenced by the COVID-19 pandemic. The minor in Epidemiology provides students foundational knowledge of the distribution and determinants of diseases—a growing field essential for public health. Students develop basic skills in epidemiology and biostatistics and apply those skills to specific topic-based courses, such as Burden of Disease, Disease Outbreak, and Public Health Biology. This is a valuable minor for students majoring in any of the pre-health tracks or other science-related majors.
- Undergraduate students with at least 30.0 credits
