MS in Biostatistics

As the need for health care and health care programs continues to grow, so does the requirement to evaluate these programs. The Master of Science degree in Biostatistics prepares students for involvement in biostatistical research, including applying statistical theory to health problems, formulation of designed population and clinical intervention trials, and adapting existing statistical theory to address newly emerging health-related problems.
