Degree MS Comprehensive Exam

A comprehensive final examination, called the Master’s Examination, will be offered at the end of each Spring Quarter. Two failures to pass the Master’s Examination will result in a recommendation to the Dean of Graduate Studies for disqualification of the student in the MS program. The Master’s Examination is developed and scored by the Division of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics within the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health (FMPH). The chair of the Biostatistics Graduate Program Committee will appoint an exam committee that will be responsible for preparing, administering and grading the examination. The exam committee will forward its recommendation to the chair of the Graduate Program Committee, which will be the final arbiter of pass or fail.
