Master of Science - Biostatistics Concentration

MS students in Biostatistics receive training in the theory and application of statistical methodology in biomedical science. Graduates of the MS program go on to professional positions in the health sciences, including biotechnology, government, the pharmaceutical industry, and many other areas. Applicants to the program should have experience in mathematics, statistics or another quantitative field. The minimum math requirement is one year of calculus and a course in linear algebra.

We also offer a Master of Public Health (MPH) in Biostatistics. If you wish to learn more about this program and/or the difference between the MS and the MPH, please visit the MPH in Biostatistics page

Please note that you may apply to both the MPH and the MS program simultaneously.
