Applied Biostatistics MPH
With a Master of Public Health in Applied Biostatistics from the College of Public Health, you will learn to harness your knowledge of statistics and analytics to uncover the data insights that could help clinicians, government agencies and social services organizations improve their constituents’ health outcomes. Many different fields of public health require applied biostatistics, including environmental health, epidemiology, health services research, nutrition, and healthcare policy and management. There is a growing need for trained, master’s-level professionals who can:
- analyze and interpret large data sets,
- calculate population health risk factors,
- code for and design databases to use in data mining,
- employ valid study designs and analytical methods,
- use complex information to evaluate healthcare policy, and much more.
Study part or full time; you have up to four years to complete your degree in Applied Biostatistics. Your classes may be completed in the evening onsite at Main Campus or at our satellite campus locations. You may also take some classes online.
Your knowledge will be tested when you complete major-related fieldwork. This could include data research or analysis, database construction and more, through an internship with a public health agency or under faculty supervision. A formal poster session, an oral presentation and a paper complete your degree.
The Applied Biostatistics MPH is one of five MPH programs in the College of Public Health.
