This course covers the basic techniques of survival analysis. These approaches are useful in analyzing cohort data, which are common in health studies, when the main interest outcome is the onset of event and time to event is known. The response is often referred to as failure time, survival time, or event time, and this course will introduce students to methods necessary for analyzing this type of data.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
