Demand for advanced expertise in biostatistics continues to be high in both the public and private sectors, particularly in settings emphasizing research in public health, clinical medicine, the biological sciences, biomedicine and biotechnology.
The primary mission of the doctoral program in Biostatistics is to provide the training necessary to carry out independent research in theory, methodology and application of statistics to important problems in biomedical research, including research biology, public health and clinical medicine.
Our master’s programs provide advanced training in the theory and application of statistical methods in public health, clinical medicine and the biological sciences 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.
The Undergraduate Concentration in Statistics leads to the Sc.B. degree, and is designed to provide foundations that include basic statistical concepts and methodologies, and to expose students to the role of statistical thinking and analysis in interdisciplinary research and in the public sphere.
