Dartmouth’s Master of Science in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (QBS) degree with a concentration in Epidemiology examines the advanced, data-intensive study of the distribution and determinants of human disease. Students focus on identifying prevention and treatment methods for diseases that affect communities and the greater national population through the collection and analysis of biomedical data.
A master’s degree in Epidemiology is increasingly becoming the gold standard to become an epidemiologist across a wide range of industries. At Dartmouth, graduates receive interdisciplinary training for rewarding careers in biomedical research, government agencies, private industries, and nonprofit health organizations.

The core courses within this QBS concentration encompass 13.5 required units in fundamental topics of epidemiology, including applied epidemiological methods, programming for data scientists, biostatistics: statistical theory and modeling, and molecular biological markers in human health studies.
The QBS degree culminates with a master’s capstone, which aims to enable students to refine their skill set in a research or applied project conducted through individual work, collaboration with a Dartmouth investigator, or an external internship. The capstone experience challenges students to display their communication, leadership, critical-thinking, and presentation skills as well as their ability to collaborate and inform peers working outside of an epidemiological function.
