The Biostatistics concentration in the University of Massachusetts Amherst School of Public Health and Health Sciences prepares students to unravel complex health issues by integrating traditional basic knowledge of biostatistics with innovative research in the biological sciences, along with the core areas of public health and the related health science disciplines. Biostatistics offers a wide range of academic programs which integrate core statistical literacy and methods with the health related biological sciences, including:
- Master of Public Health (M.P.H.)
- Master of Science (M.S.)
- Accelerated Master of Science (M.S.)
- Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
Biostatistics’ central role in the analysis of public health and biomedical data represent outstanding opportunities.
