Arnold School of Public Health


MPH in Epidemiology

The MPH program is a multi-disciplinary approach to public health education that prepares students to apply their knowledge in practice settings. Our graduates pursue a variety of careers, including positions within state and county health departments, academic institutions, and non-profit organizations. In Fall 2019, we will launch or redesigned MPH degree curriculum, which has been integrated across the public health disciplines. More details are available at: sph.sc.edu/mph.
