Biostatistics

Turn numbers into answers

Biostatisticians are in high demand

Biostatisticians love working with numbers, make sense of data and are driven to address biological questions.

They apply statistics to public health and health care settings and use data to address pressing health topics such as genetic modeling, bone health, kidney disease and the links between stressful experiences, health, well-being and cognition.

Work that matters

As a student, you’ll work with your cohort and professors on relevant research projects, many of which involve other disciplines.

Once you graduate, you will be in high demand.  

You can work in health departments, medical schools, non-governmental agencies, CDC and WHO field programs, pharmaceutical companies, high-tech, private industry and more.  

Our biostatistics master’s program also serves as a basis for doctoral training in statistics or biostatistics.
