Epidemiology is the study of factors affecting health and illness in communities and populations. The master of public health (MPH) program in epidemiology is a non-thesis degree program that provides students with an understanding of the principles and practice of epidemiological research.
The goal of this program is to prepare graduates with the skills and competencies to evaluate and participate in epidemiological research and to translate and apply this knowledge to the practice of public health.
Those with an MPH in epidemiology collaborate with a wide range of public health and clinical health care practitioners, researchers, administrators and policy makers to develop, evaluate and monitor health policies, programs and practices; and to develop, conduct and evaluate surveillance programs designed to identify and address emerging health problems.
Graduates may be employed as practicing epidemiologists in a broad range of organizations such as federal and provincial public health agencies, health care organizations, private industry, and educational settings.
