Learning Outcomes

  • Master of Science students will demonstrate an understanding of current public health practice and how various health-related disciplines contribute to achieving public health goals.
  • Master of Science students will demonstrate an understanding of the principles and practices that are used in epidemiology to examine the health status of populations and translate epidemiologic findings into public health action.
