Introduction to Biostatistics and Epidemiology Micro-Credential
Biostatistics and Epidemiology are at the core of the field of Public Health. This micro-credential will introduce learners to the major Biostatistics and Epidemiology concepts and how they apply to the field of public health. Through examples and practical applications during their classes, students hone skills that they can later apply to the work that they do outside of the classroom.
Students will be required to complete the following courses to earn the micro-credential:
- MPHP 601- Principles of Epidemiology
- MPHP 602-Principles of Biostatistics
The micro-credential will culminate with a 1000 word micro research report. Students will complete this report upon successful completion of MPHP 601 and 602. Each student will be assigned a data set and asked to write a report, based on the data, that includes the following sections:
- Literature Review
This report is meant to be a brief way that students can apply what they have learned in their courses to a real-life setting.
