M.S. in Biostatistics


Use Data to Improve Health and Health Care

As the health care system evolves – both in the U.S. and abroad – there is an increasing need for health analytics by biomedical research institutions, biotechnology companies, pharmaceutical companies, health information exchanges, hospital collaborations and health-related research firms.

This quantitative degree program will arm you with the tools to build and interpret predictive models to assess health outcomes and to develop systems for optimal health care delivery.  

In this program, you will:

  • Learn data engineering and develop mastery in managing and analyzing “big data.” 
  • Master quantitative analysis techniques including sophisticated regression and modeling techniques and interpretive skills.  
  • Discover ways to provide value to teams of clinical and policy decision makers in a variety of health care settings.
  • Gain an understanding and facility with decision-making based on probability and risk. 
  • Learn to turn data into information by developing the ability to extract meaningful information from the analyses of large datasets.


Delivery Options:
This program is offered in a traditional format, with late afternoon and evening classes on campus.

Credits Required for Completion: 36
