The Master of Science in Biostatistics (MSBST) program offers a unique mix of core and electives courses, real-world projects, experiential learning/training opportunities to prepare our graduates to make an impact in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the region, and beyond. Graduates of Master of Science in Biostatistics degree programs often pursue careers in the following:
Government agencies (FDA, NIH, Census Bureau)
Universities and research institutions
Hospitals and cancer centers
Leveraging our partners on campus gives our students a unique advantage. Some of these partnerships include the UK Center for Clinical and Translation Science (CCTS) and the UK Biostatistics, Epidemiology & Research Design (BERD), which offers our students valuable training opportunities in the application of descriptive and inferential statistics specific to biomedical research, clinical and translational studies, public health and more. Research shows high demand, but low supply of current graduates in biostatistics. Graduates of the MSBST program will have the opportunity to pursue some of the following current and future in-demand careers after graduating.
