M.S. in Biostatistics
A minimum of 30 credits is required for the degree. Bridge courses, if any, will not count toward degree credits. The graduate curriculum consists of seven core courses in background statistical theory and biostatistics, as described in the curriculum below. The remaining courses are electives, chosen in consultation with a departmental graduate advisor and consist of topics courses in statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology and biology that have significant statistics content or/and applications thereof. Students will be encouraged to choose courses in application areas. Courses offered by appropriate departments at NJIT, RBHS, and Rutgers University-Newark can be used as electives within the limits of the NJIT transfer policy. A masters project is optional, and is in addition to the minimum 30 approved credits, required for the degree.
