In 2015, a professional M.S. program in biostatistics was established in addition to the traditional M.S. in statistics. The biostatistics program aims to provide an in-depth training in statistics for health and pharmaceutical sciences with a strong emphasis on computing and data science. Due to the rapid growth of the healthcare industry, students in our biostatistics program will be placed on a competitive footing in the job market. Those who plan to pursue a continued academic training will also have a strong foundation in theory and statistical methodologies.
