The Division of Epidemiology is one of the graduate divisions within the SDSU Graduate School of Public Health. It offers the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with concentration in Epidemiology. Epidemiology has often been termed “the basic science of public health.” The Epidemiology concentration provides training in the following areas: identification of biological, environmental, social, and behavioral risk factors for human disease; determination of the distribution and etiology of health and disease in human populations. The program in Epidemiology is designed to prepare students to be public health practitioners as well as for careers in teaching and research. Epidemiologists may continue on to become leaders in public or private health agencies and organizations.
