The 43-credit curriculum provides students with hands-on skills of applying data science principles to process, visualize and analyze data in order to extract meaningful information to address important questions in public health and the health sciences. Students in this track will also learn to use popular software packages such as R, SAS, SQL and Tableau. Data scientists are in high demand in several fields. Data science professionals with added contextual expertise of public health will find career opportunities at state or federal departments of public health, universities, pharmaceutical industries, and business entities.

Epidemiologists are public health professionals that focus on the causes, patterns and control of diseases and injury in populations. Epidemiology is a fundamental science of public health and is essential to the reduction of risk and the occurrence of negative health outcomes. The epidemiology curriculum provides rigorous training in the knowledge and skills for analyzing community health problems, with emphasis on how to measure and describe the health of populations.

Students in the Health Management and Policy track work to address the complex issues presented by today’s dynamic healthcare sector. Students prepare to face the cost, access and quality challenges of the healthcare system, incorporating concepts and competencies from areas such as management, policy analysis and finance.
