Master's Admissions Requirements

The master’s program is designed to provide advanced training in the underlying principles and practice of epidemiology for students with little or no prior graduate-level training.  We do not require a specific type of undergraduate degree, and indeed we encourage applications from students with a variety of academic backgrounds. 

Results from a recent GRE general test (within five years) are required.  Subject tests are not required but may be submitted. MCAT and other related tests for professional schools cannot be substituted for the GRE. 

TOEFL scores are required for students whose native language is not English, but may be waived for those who hold a bachelors or master’s degree from a US institution.

The online application for the Epidemiology master's program opens on September 1st, 2015.  The application deadline is February 15th, 2016 for Fall 2016 admission.
