You will receive the necessary foundation for a career as a health educator, program coordinator, research associate, and program evaluator/researcher in a variety of settings, including public health agencies, private non-profit and advocacy organizations, and other health-related organizations. You will acquire skills appropriate for pursuing doctoral study in public health, especially in the area of social and behavioral sciences. Epidemiology Understanding the Cause, Analyzing the Spread, and Preventing Disease Epidemiology is the basic science of disease recognition, characterization and prevention. The application of epidemiologic tools and principles is increasingly important not only to public health but also in clinical practice. What causes disease? How is it distributed in the population? What are the determinants of disease and what makes certain individuals more susceptible to disease than others? And what can we do to protect more people and more communities from disease and death? Often called “the cornerstone” of public health, epidemiology studies these questions to understand disease processes and apply that information to develop and evaluate protection and control measures. In the M.P.H. in Epidemiology, you will study trends, patterns, and causes related to disease in populations. You will learn to create and interpret complex statistical models to understand risk factors for and solutions to diseases that affect public health. You will be trained to effectively communicate such research and findings to lay and professional audiences. The M.P.H. degree in Epidemiology provides students with the knowledge and quantitative skills necessary to participate in the areas of medical, clinical, and public health research. Successful completion of this program will qualify you for careers with health care providers, local and state health departments, federal agencies and the pharmaceutical industry. Environmental Health Science Explore the Interaction between Health and the Environment Our environment has a major impact on our health. We depend on clean air, clean water and a safe food supply to sustain ourselves and our communities. Agriculture, transportation, construction, energy production and use, and manufacturing all have a significant impact on the environment. And all of these industries introduce situations and questions that require the expertise of trained professionals. This program provides the conceptual framework and practical tools to recognize and address environmental hazards.

Students gain skill in counseling in alternative and complementary medicine using nutritional strategies. The program further explores the role of nutrition as a preventive, adjunctive, alternative strategy for the prevention and amelioration of specific health conditions. The program also provides its graduates with a foundation for entering Ph.D. programs in nutrition. Program of Study The Human Nutrition Program consists of foundational courses in human physiology and biochemistry which expand into in-depth learnings on macro and micronutrients, biochemical individuality, human development, functional assessment, and nutritional therapeutics. An integrative and holistic perspective is interwoven with an evidence-based approach to assessing and counseling a client. The program provides this comprehensive study to individuals with busy schedules who would otherwise not be able to complete a graduate program without interrupting their work schedules.

The program is accessible to individuals through an on-campus program with classes which are held Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., one weekend each month for 28 months, or through a distance learning online format. Accreditation The Human Nutrition Master’s program is licensed and accredited by the Connecticut Board of Governors Office of Higher Education, while the University of Bridgeport is institutionally accredited through New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
