This unique program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of many fields related to infectious disease, and extensive training in lab or research technologies used in epidemiology, diagnostics, immunotherapeutics, immunology, molecular biology and microbiology. Additionally, a unique animal model course trains students to study infections and intoxications in vivo, observing clinical symptoms, evaluating therapies, collecting and assaying biological samples, and analyzing and presenting data.

The Master of Science in Infectious Disease and Global Health Program is designed to advance students to meaningful careers in the biopharma industry, government agencies, academia and non-profit organizations in a variety of areas, including basic and applied laboratory and field investigations, clinical research, disease diagnosis, global health, biodefense, biocontainment, and biosafety.
