M.S. in Biostatistics
The Master’s in Science in Biostatistics permits a flexible curriculum subject to covering the basics.
Provided certain basic criteria are satisfied, a student wishing to begin focusing on a specific area within biostatistics may do so essentially on arrival (via the special topics course). The opportunities for focused study increase during the second semester of study and more generally the program leadership is open to students designing their own programs by substituting courses from other departments.
There are four distinct types of instructions in the program. In addition to traditional direct instruction in the classroom, there are seminar courses (one per semester), a Practicum, and a Major Paper or Thesis under an advisor in order to finish.
The normal time of completion for the program is two years as a fulltime student.
