Prospective Students

Our two fields of study – Epidemiology and Biostatistics and Public Health – offer students the resources of a top-tier university and world-renowned medical center in the heart of a great city.

Our centralized location also provides opportunities to identify and address public health issues in the communities around Chicago, each with their own distinct population and needs. Our program is integrated with the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and our faculty-researchers are at the forefront of groundbreaking research and are among the most cited in the world.

Individualized Attention, Countless Possibilities

Our students experience the best of both worlds with the personal attention of a small program combined with the resources of a large research institution. Our program size allows us to offer a unique and relevant mix of degree pathways that bridge theory and practice to produce alumni who are professionally competitive and thoughtful practitioners.
