Teaching modes (remote, hybrid, in-person) are subject to change at any point. If this happens, faculty will be in contact with students enrolled in their courses.
To determine if a course is remote, hybrid, or in-person use the catalog search tool to narrow results. Otherwise, when browsing courses, the section indicates teaching mode:
R = Remote
H = Hybrid
0 = In-person
Epidemiology, a public health discipline, is the study of disease and disability in human populations.
