Biostatistics is the science of making decisions in the face of uncertainty. Its study provides a background for understanding numerical data and the process of making inferences from such data. Biostatistics is an invaluable tool for all scientific disciplines, as well as being a significant mathematical discipline in its own right. The Department of Biostatistics provides students with a calculus-based foundation in probability and statistics before branching into numerous areas of application. This foundation prepares students for career opportunities in government, business, health sciences and industry, or for graduate study in any quantitative discipline.
The Biostatistics department offers an undergraduate minor in Statistics and a BA degree in Statistics. Please see Degrees and Programs for the minor requirements.
