What will I learn?

The Biostatistics (BIO) master’s degree programs teach and develop statistical skills to put numbers into context as part of public health research for solving human health-related problems. With an MS or MPH in biostatistics, students will have the skills to collaborate on the design of biomedical studies, analyze data, and communicate the results for researchers. The entrance requirements are the same for both the MPH and the MS programs. MPH students intending to take more Biostatistics electives or continue with a PhD may need more time to complete both their required coursework and the PhD prerequisites. For these reasons, the majority of students in the Biostatistics program choose the MS program rather than the MPH.
