Epidemiology (minor)

Field Description

This minor field offers a graduate program in conjunction with several areas of specialization, including biometry, environmental toxicology, nutrition, sociology, statistics, animal science, and veterinary medicine. Students may pursue an M.S., an M.A., or a Ph.D. degree with a minor in epidemiology. Graduate students enrolled in the program conduct their research in the departments of their major advisors. Applicants should have a sound background in mathematics and in the sciences that are consistent with the requirements of their proposed major field of interest.

The study of epidemiology at Cornell is a minor field, and application for admission is made only to the major fields. After matriculation, a student may select to study epidemiology at Cornell by choosing to minor in epidemiology.
