Our program incorporates the development of skills for designing epidemiological studies, considering bias and applying statistical methods to epidemiological data, in order to ultimately interpret results within the strengths and weaknesses of a particular study. These skills are developed through methods coursework along with culminating experience (MS thesis or PhD dissertation).

The Epidemiology program is the oldest degree program in our college. Two niches for the UA Epidemiology program are a transdisciplinary approach to disease prevention and our research among populations and communities of the Southwest US. The faculty within the program are highly collaborative across the university and this collaboration becomes a model for students. Much of the research being done by the faculty within the program, in which students are participating, is transdisciplinary in nature and focused on issues relevant to populations of the Southwest.
