Demand for advanced expertise in Biostatistics continues to be high in both the public and private sectors, particularly in settings emphasizing research in biomedicine and biotechnology. The Masters programs leading to either the AM or ScM in Biostatistics provides advanced training in the theory and application of statistical methods in public health, clinical medicine and the biological sciences.
The masters degree programs are designed to provide advanced training for individuals pursuing careers as professional statisticians or data analysts in industry, government or academia; those contemplating doctoral study in biostatistics; and established researchers seeking advanced training in biostatistics. The training is provided through coursework and the completion of a thesis. The programs require one to two years to complete. The following pages offer details of degree requirements, course offerings and the program's Fifth-Year Masters Program.
Partial financial aid is available in the form of tuition scholarships and research apprenticeships. Full consideration will be given to applications received by the Department's Master's Program application deadline of 1 February.
