What is Epidemiology?
Epidemiology is at the very core of solutions to the world’s health challenges, creating an urgent need for epidemiologists across health and human service industries. Disease and illness are not random occurrences; epidemiologists seek to uncover why and how some people contract diseases, while others do not. It is this research that guides epidemiologists to inform policy decisions and evidenced-based practice.
Georgetown University is proud to now offer a new interdisciplinary Master of Science in Epidemiology with a crosscutting theme of health disparities, motivated by the University’s commitment to social justice and community engagement.
Who should apply?
Georgetown is a community of individuals with diverse educational and professional backgrounds. As we continue to grow, the M.S. in Epidemiology program is looking to build upon the inclusivity of the larger Georgetown community. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. What unites them is their commitment to combating health disparities throughout the world.
