Online Epidemiology Course Information and Requirements

Most free online epidemiology courses are OpenCourseWare (OCW) classes, which means they were offered on campus but are now available online for free. In some cases, not all materials from the original class are available to OCW learners. All OCW courses are designed for independent learning and don't result in credit or grades. These courses contain lectures that can be viewed directly online or downloaded to a media player. Additional OCW materials frequently include assignments, exams, study materials and links to relevant resources.

All of these free courses include downloadable lectures, reading lists and assignments that you can complete to test your knowledge and understanding of the lecture material.
