The Master in Epidemiology received the High Quality Accreditation for six (6) years by the Ministry of National Education through resolution No. 018610 of December 3, 2018, is the first master's degree accredited at CES University, and the third in Colombia to receive this important recognition that guarantees that the program meets the standards of quality, social, academic and research relevance.

The Master in Epidemiology trains researchers for the scientific development of new knowledge that respond to the needs of the country and the region, through the development of skills that allow them to bridge the gap between the knowledge generated and its application to improve the quality of life and population health.

We develop our program in four face-to-face and independent cycles, offering our students the possibility of strengthening their knowledge in epidemiology based on research and applied practice.
