General Requirements

The minimum requirements for admission to the Master of Biostatistics Program include:

  • A bachelor’s degree (or the equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree) from an accredited institution.
  • Mathematics coursework through multivariable calculus and a strong interest in biological science. Linear algebra is highly recommended.

Incoming students must be well-prepared in terms of general mathematical and scientific background. Strength in mathematics is assumed. Prior coursework or other relevant experience in the biological sciences is not required, but will be advantageous and viewed favorably in admissions decisions.
