The Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) offers a revolutionary new, Masters of Science (MS) Program in Biostatistics, a discipline in high and exploding demand. The program can be done intensively in 11 months, or at a slower pace to finish in 1.5 or 2 years. The program was designed after extensive interviews were conducted with a wide array of potential employers to make sure our graduates will have the edge in a marketplace that has been rapidly changing. More and more, biostatisticians are expected to have familiarity with the area of application. The CWRU MS Biostatistics program reflects these new needs. Students may elect to take the program part-time and complete it at their own pace.

Picture yourself saving and improving lives:

  • Analyzing data from health studies to determine the best treatment
  • Working with data from millions of patients
  • Identifying genes linked to specific diseases
  • Using data to develop instruments to measure latent constructs like psychosocial well-being
