The Graduate Group in Epidemiology emphasizes the Doctor of Philosophy degree. Students entering the program with prerequisite training can complete required course work in four quarters. Students advance to candidacy by passing a qualifying oral examination.
The University offers fellowships specifically designed to promote campus diversity and the group strongly supports this effort. We encourage underrepresented minorities to apply to the group and to apply for financial aid and affiliated preparation programs, such as the McNair Scholars Programs and the UC LEADS scholar program.
