The Master of Science in Biostatistics program is designed to prepare students for careers as data analysts and applied statisticians in the biomedical sciences. It is the ideal advanced degree choice for students whose goal is to work as a biostatistician in a clinical, research, or industry setting. It also serves as the perfect stepping stone on the path to earning a PhD in Biostatistics or Epidemiology.
Presented in a one-year, full-time format, the MS in Biostatistics program offers students rigorous, comprehensive didactic training in high-quality clinical and translational research. Our curriculum provides students with strong quantitative training as well as practical strategies for addressing complex challenges of novel, clinical research. The program also helps students hone their critical thinking skills. The cohort consists of only 5-10 students, providing the opportunity to gain excellent mentorship and individualized attention from faculty in biostatistics and a variety of other disciplines.
