About the Master's Program

The masters program with a focus in bioinformatics or epidemiology will provide integrated training in computational, quantitative, and biomedical sciences to support health-related research performed in academia, government and industry. Students will be able to implement their newly acquired knowledge via sessions in the computational laboratory and daily homework.

Students will collaborate closely with DBBB faculty and biomedical scientists; they will be encouraged to apply and implement the methodologies and knowledge immediately in their work environment.

All students are required to complete a total of 32 course credits. Full-time students can complete the program in three semesters (1.5 years) and are required to complete a summer internship.

The prerequisites required for the masters program are Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, and a college-level statistics course. Alternative combinations of coursework and/or experience will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
