Certificate in Bioststatisics

For graduation with a Certificate in Biostatistics, students must complete 15 core course credits. Each student will be paired with an Academic Advisor (assigned in the summer prior to Fall matriculation) to discuss their specific curriculum and plan for completion. The Certificates are offered on a full-time and part-time basis. The prerequisites required for the Certificate in Biostatistics 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.
