MS in Biostatistics

The MS in Biostatistics involves training in Biostatistics methods and data analysis, and includes theoretical and applied classroom work in the core biostatistics courses, with additional electives in life sciences. The core courses incorporate classroom projects in data analysis pertinent to biomedical data, and introduce literate programming and reproducible research practices. A Practicum in Biostatistics course will train students in preparing and presenting statistical analyses, using data drawn from collaborative projects in biomedical or public health sciences, with required oral presentations and an analysis report.
