BSPH in Epidemiology

A rigorous academic core and hands-on field experience

In addition to the five core areas of public health—epidemiology, health administration, environmental health, biostatistics, and social and behavioral health—you will take specialized courses in subjects such as disease surveillance, data collection and  analysis, and identification of risk factors for infectious and chronic diseases. 

Learning is not limited to the classroom. You will gain practical, hands-on field experience through our required internship program and have opportunities to conduct research and service projects with IU faculty.

Whether you want to pursue an advanced degree or a rewarding career such as maternal and child health specialist, biostatistician, or public health educator, you will be prepared.  Our team of career coaches in the Office of Career Services will work with you to develop a plan that is tailored to you.
