Best Online Master’s Programs in Epidemiology for 2022

UAB’s recognition comes at a time when enrollment in master’s degree programs is on the rise. In October of 2021, the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) reported a 7.3% increase in first-time graduate student enrollment in Fall 2020. First-time, part-time student enrollment rose by 13.5%. The CGS report cites the growth of online and hybrid learning options as a primary driver of these trends.

“Our goal was to find the master’s programs that are making online learning a priority,” said Kyle Darland, co-founder of OnlineMastersDegrees.org. “Each school in our epidemiology ranking offers at least one partially or fully-online master’s degree option, and for a price students can afford.”

OnlineMastersDegrees.org researched and analyzed more than 7,700 accredited schools using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and from the schools themselves. The website’s data science team then applied a proprietary algorithm to rank all qualifying epidemiology programs. Primary data points include:

  • Number of online master’s programs in subject area
  • Number of online students
  • Online program tuition and fees
  • Percentage of students offered institutional aid
  • Amount of institutional aid awarded per student
