Graduate Minor in Biostatistics
About the Graduate Minor
Biostatistics is a growing discipline with numerous employment opportunities for those trained in the field. This graduate minor provides a foundation in biostatistics for students with majors in other fields, allowing the student to broaden their skillset, expanding employment opportunities upon graduation.
Graduate minors are designed to complement students' training by providing basic knowledge in topics outside their primary discipline. All matriculated graduate students in quarter programs, except for students pursuing the MS in Biostatistics and PhD in Biostatistics, are eligible to enroll.
Please note several classes have prerequisite requirements, including BST 560.
Students must receive approval from their home program and the Dornsife School of Public Health and complete the necessary paperwork with the DSPH Academic Advising Team.
