Minor in Epidemiology

This minor examines the principles and skills required to examine factors associated with the development and prevention of disease. The Epidemiology minor is intended for students who want to explore a secondary interest in population medicine, or those who wish to apply the skills of their major concentration to population health. For students whose major falls within the Humanities or Natural Sciences Divisions, completing an Epidemiology minor will fulfill the Social Science requirement.
