The MS in Biostatistics involves training in Biostatistics
methods and data analysis, and includes theoretical and applied classroom work
in the core biostatistics courses, with additional electives in life sciences.
The core courses incorporate classroom projects in data analysis pertinent to
biomedical data, and introduce literate programming and reproducible research
practices. A Practicum in Biostatistics course will train students in preparing
and presenting statistical analyses, using data drawn from collaborative
projects in biomedical or public health sciences, with required oral
presentations and an analysis report.
