Overview of IPHG Degree Programs

Institute for Public Health Genetics graduate degree programs prepare students for careers in which they will apply a knowledge of genetic advances to public health. Our degree programs emphasize the application of advances in human genetics and genomic sciences to improve public health and prevent disease. The interdisciplinary program provides rigorous training in Fundamental Areas of Study (human genetics and public health) and two Core Knowledge Areas: Genomics in Public Health (genetic epidemiology, ecogenetics, and pharmacogenetics) and Implications of Genetics for Society (ethics & social science, law & policy, and health economics & outcomes research).
