Master’s Program

The Master’s programs provide advanced training in the theory and application of statistical methods in public health, clinical medicine, and the biological sciences.  The Master’s degree program is designed to provide advanced training for a heterogeneous audience that includes 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.   For Brown undergraduates, we offer a fifth-year Master’s (AM) degree that can be completed in one year after receiving the bachelor’s degree. The AM degree program is also open to Brown Graduate students pursuing a master’s degree in a secondary field through the University’s Open Graduate Education Program (OGE).
