Students enrolled in the Master of Science in Biostatistics program will learn statistical techniques for study design, data analysis, and statistical reporting for scientific and lay audiences. In addition, students who earn this degree will be proficient in several essential skills, including data management, statistical analysis, the interpretation of numerical data for scientific inference in studies of medicine and public health, and the capacity for cross-disciplinary collaboration and effective communication with scientists and public health stakeholders.

Graduates of the curriculum are qualified to work as statisticians in various fields, including the public sector, higher education, the medical field, and business. Students also receive instruction in biostatistics and epidemiology as preparation for quantitative PhD programs in public health.
Students will have the chance to collaborate with teachers on various public health issues.

A biostatistician's career path is typically in academia, business, or government. The majority of biostatistics departments, however, train their students to ensure that their training is broadly applicable. As a result, a lot of biostatistics graduates work in high technology.

The average income for biostatisticians is $93,290. Within this broad group, the median pay for mathematicians is $110,860, while the median salary for statisticians is $92,270.

Most biostatisticians work for the federal government in specialized divisions like the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Census Bureau, or other departments. Others, though, are employed by for-profit educational and financial institutions.

Compared to other occupations, the demand for biostatisticians is anticipated to increase by 33 per cent in the upcoming ten years (2020–2030). These statisticians are increasingly in order in the medical arena, especially in the pharmaceutical sector, where they may assist with research and clinical trials for cutting-edge drugs and medical devices.
