Infectious Disease (INFD) Flexible Learning

The Master of Science in Infectious Disease program is designed to accommodate all students, including working professionals. Classes can be attended at the Center City and Queen Lane Campuses of Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. State-of-the-art video conferencing provides real-time interactive learning at these locations. Technology can also be used for distance learning and joint sessions outside normal class times.


If you prefer an online learning experience, you can still earn a Drexel master’s degree in the field of infectious disease. The online Master of Science in Infectious Disease program features the same curriculum, flexibility, course content, and instructors as the traditional, face-to-face degree program.

Schedule Flexibility

Most classes are held in the late afternoon/early evening to facilitate participation of working professionals. Many of the required and elective courses are offered both live and online, providing the student the flexibility to choose a mix of traditional, face-to-face courses and online courses. The goal is to provide maximum scheduling flexibility.

Individual Plans of Study

Although most students will complete the program in two years, some may opt to enroll on a part-time basis, taking up to four years to complete the degree program. For more details about full- and part-time plans of study, visit the Curriculum page.
