Biostatistics

Welcome to the Division of Biostatistics in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of South Carolina’s Arnold School of Public Health.

So much of today’s world is data driven! Do you ever imagine yourself making our community healthier by turning data into knowledge that will provide data-driven guidance to improve public health?

Biostatistics is at the forefront of many of today’s big data challenges and uses rigorous methods to unravel the true story hidden within increasingly complex data.  

Biostatisticians are currently in great demand! Our graduates hold positions in universities, research institutes, governmental agencies such as CDC, NIH, and state health departments, and in private industry including pharmaceutical companies and even financial institutions.

The Division of Biostatistics includes eleven full-time faculty.  Our faculty are passionate about teaching, mentoring and advancing biostatistical methodologies that address complex issues in data analysis and interpretation.  We integrate techniques in mathematics, statistics and public health to turn data into the answers to pressing public health and clinical questions. Students will not only acquire rigorous training in statistical methods and computational tools but will be educated in cognate areas of health sciences such as genetics and epidemiology. 

The Division’s primary areas of research expertise are longitudinal data analysis, Bayesian data analysis, spatial data analysis, quantile regression, correlated data analysis, survival analysis, brain imaging data analysis, and integrative analysis of “-omics” data.

Degrees Offered

We offer eight advanced degrees in epidemiology and biostatistics. Each graduate degree has specific application deadlines and requirements.
