HSCI 340 - Principles of Epidemiology


Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and causes of disease at the population level. This course is an introduction to the basic principles and methods of epidemiology, including study design concepts, quantitative methods, and critical thinking skills relating to the study of infectious and chronic disease. Students learn how epidemiologic principles and methods are applied in the fields of health care and public health, and are introduced to the skills needed to evaluate the strengths and limitations of epidemiologic methods and to interpret the results of epidemiologic studies.

Prerequisites & Notes
HSCI 325 - Biostatistics (or MATH 215 or PSYC 211)

Note that we are submitting a separate proposal to change the course number for HSCI 325; we are proposing to make Biostatistics a 200-level course (will become HSCI 225)
