Biostatistics, BA/BS

A degree in Biostatistics trains students for work in a wide variety of challenging positions in government, industry, hospitals, education, and research centers. Biostatisticians will be trained in the skilled application of statistical methods to the solution of problems encountered in public health and medicine. There has always been a strong demand for well-trained Biostatisticians. Graduates will find careers involving teaching, research, and consulting in such fields as medicine, public health, life sciences, survey research, and computer science. Graduates with the statistical background, undertaking this BS program will further enhance their understanding of health issues and the application of statistics.

Biostatistics is the application of statistical science to research in health-related fields including medicine, biology, public health, nursing, and pharmacy. The objective of Biostatistics is to advance statistical science and its application to problems of human health and disease, with the goal of advancing statistics. The role of biostatisticians is an important one, especially when it comes to designing studies and analyzing data from research problems. Biostatisticians help in formulating the scientific questions to be answered, determine appropriate sampling techniques, coordinate data collection procedures, and conduct statistical analyses to answer those scientific questions. Biostatisticians also play vital role in the preparation of research material for publication.
