Department Website

The Colorado School of Public Health is an academic collaboration among three Colorado public universities: the University of Colorado Denver, Colorado State University, and University of Northern Colorado. The Master of Science (MS) in Epidemiology and the Doctorate (PhD) in Epidemiology are offered at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO.

The MS in Epidemiology provides training in the scientific foundations of epidemiology and prepares individuals to address complex public health issues. Through developing sophisticated analytic and research skills, as well as an understanding of the environmental, social and ethical factors that contribute to health and wellness in the community, scientists trained in this program will be prepared for careers in epidemiologic research, and development and evaluation of new approaches to public health surveillance, risk assessment and epidemic investigation.

The PhD program in Epidemiology trains individuals in epidemiologic research and its application to public health to prepare graduates for research and teaching careers in the health sciences. The curriculum provides training in epidemiologic methods for clinical, observational and community-based research, including study design, statistical analysis, biological principles and disease etiology.

The epidemiology faculty has a strong base of funded research projects providing students with many opportunities for research support and data for thesis projects. Students study with experts in cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, genetic epidemiology, obesity, maternal and child health, and behavioral interventions.
