Masters Program


The Masters (M.S.) program in Biostatistics with a focus in bioinformatics 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 encouraged to complete a summer internship.

Required prerequisites for the Master's 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.

Possible full-time and part-time schedules for the Masters Program.
