If you love working with numbers and are driven to address biological questions, you should consider a degree in Biostatistics.
Biostatisticians apply statistics to public health and health care settings. You will use data to address pressing health topics, such as genetic modeling, bone health, kidney disease, and the links between stressful experiences, health, well-being and cognition.
As a student, you’ll work with your cohort and professors on relevant research projects, many of which collaborate with other disciplines.
Once you graduate, you will be in high demand. You can work in health departments, medical schools, nongovernmental agencies, CDC and WHO field programs, pharmaceutical companies and more. Our biostatistics master’s program also serves as a basis for doctoral training in statistics or biostatistics.
