About the Program

What causes cancer? Will this up-and-coming drug work? As a biostatistician, you'll use data to answer these and many of our other most burning health care questions. Better yet, you'll be able to use this information for a career in research, data management, and statistical analysis.

To begin, we're going to completely immerse you in statistics courses. Your classes will cover topics such as general linear models, statistical methods, statistical theory, and data management and analysis. Then, you'll take a series of pre-doctoral, public health seminars and non-quantitative electives in areas like biology or medicine. We'll also have electives that focus on epidemiologic research methods and topics within the field of biostatistics for you to choose from. Before you complete the program, you'll complete a non-thesis research project and present it to a graduate committee. Finally, we'll offer you the chance to participate in hands-on learning experiences while you're here.
