What is Biostatistics (MS) at WVU like?
The MS in Biostatistics program is for students who want to merge their interest in analytics and programming with their interest in health research. Students should have a background in a quantitative field (e.g., mathematics, statistics, computer science), an interest in programming, and a desire to apply their skills in the areas of medicine or public health.
The Master of Science in Biostatistics program focuses on training students to design studies, and to model and interpret data arising from research in health and medicine. MS Biostatisticians collaborate with researchers through the application of statistical and computational methods to clinical studies, electronic medical records, chart reviews and other health-related data sources. They work as part of a team to help health experts arrive at evidence-based conclusions about disease and health risks in an effort to improve population health.
Each graduate program sets their own term of admission and application deadline. Applicants can only apply for admission for the term displayed below. Any questions regarding the application deadline should be directed to the graduate program representative.
