Program Description

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 program’s structure provides students with the opportunity to gain excellent mentorship and individualized attention from faculty in biostatistics and a variety of other disciplines.

The Master of Science in Biostatistics program provides students with the fundamental skills required for conducting high-quality clinical and translational research. The curriculum emphasizes strong quantitative training, critical thinking skills, and practical strategies for addressing complex challenges in clinical research.

The Theory and Methods Track is aimed at students whose goal is to work as biostatisticians or data analysts in a clinical, research, or industry setting. It can also be used as a stepping stone to pursuing a PhD in Biostatistics or Epidemiology. Applicants do not need to have a background related to a health or clinical field, but a strong quantitative background is required.

The Clinical Applications Track is designed for clinical and translational investigators who want to acquire knowledge of quantitative methods in clinical research. A strong quantitative background and a degree in Medical Sciences (MD, DDS, DMD, ND, or DO) are required to apply to this track. Each track in the program consists of at least 34 credits and must be completed in one full-time year. There are two parts: a course requirement and a capstone requirement.
