Program Description

The MS in Epidemiology is a degree program for students who want to gain additional theoretical and applied knowledge as well as the skills and credentials they need to advance in their career tracks. This program is designed to provide students a solid foundation in epidemiology and biostatistics. Specifically, there will be an emphasis on developing answerable clinical and research questions, testable hypotheses, and sound study design for research projects which range from clinical trials to global population health. This degree program is designed for highly motivated professionals or recent college graduates working in academia, clinics, healthcare companies, federal agencies, health departments, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, or other healthcare settings.

The MS in Epidemiology will focus on recruiting and training students who would like to increase their applied epidemiology knowledge, build research methodology and statistical skillsets, and earn an advanced degree without disrupting their career.

The program requires 36 total credit hours, including 5 research Capstone course credit hours. The Capstone course will be the culminating experience for students enrolled in the MS in Epidemiology. It will be feasible for students to complete the Capstone course in their local areas, which is important for students who live outside the Augusta metropolitan area. Students completing their Capstone will interact with faculty online. The program should take four semesters to complete, even for a working professional, and is delivered in an online format.
