Biostatisticians work alongside researchers, practitioners and clinicians to develop and implement strategies for quantitative data collection and analyses through research design and methods in order to make an impact on population health outcomes. Our students in this public health department learn skills related to study designs, application, interpretation and communication of statistical methods and the results, along with needed computing skills at the forefront of the public health field. In fact, a master’s degree in biostatistics is the number one graduate degree in the nation with projected growth of 18 percent, according to Forbes’ annual ranking of 45 popular degrees.
Currently, Stempel College offers an MPH degree with a concentration in biostatistics. Additional master’s and doctoral degree programs are in the works.
