The Department of Global Biostatistics and Data Science offers both master's and doctoral degree programs.
The Department of Global Biostatistics and Data Science offers three master's level programs All programs have a strong emphasis on applied data analysis. The MSPH also provides training in a broad background in other areas of public health (e.g., epidemiology, environmental health), establishing a foundation for the graduate to apply statistical methodologies in a range of public health application areas. The M.S. programs provide a foundation in mathematical statistics and probability theory, enabling the graduate to assist in the application of statistical theory to statistical problems in health sciences and molecular biology.
