College of Public Health Guidebooks
oncentration: Epidemiology (Code: EPO)
This concentration is the same as our Epidemiology (EPY) program but for online students.
The epidemiology concentration is a professional degree, intended for individuals who wish to obtain a broad understanding of public health, with an emphasis on epidemiologic principles and methods. The knowledge and skills obtained through the concentration will enable graduates to characterize the health status of communities, critically evaluate research on determinants of health-related events, formulate strategies to evaluate the impact of health related interventions and foster the application of epidemiologic methods for health promotion/disease prevention activities at the community level. The concentration can be offered in traditional format as well as online.

There may be circumstances in which a student may need to change their catalog year. This must be initiated through a discussion with your academic advisor. Details regarding USF policy on changing catalog year can be found at http://catalog.usf.edu/content.php?catoid=9&navoid=987#graduate-catalog.
