Dual Degree Program

The Dual Ph.D. in Mathematics and MS in Biostatistics is a joint effort of the Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics and the Department of Mathematics. Students enrolled in the dual degree program simultaneously work toward an MS in Biostatistics and a Ph.D. in Applied and Industrial Mathematics.  While all of the requirements of both the MS in Biostatistics and Ph.D. in Applied and Industrial Mathematics must be met, students enrolled in the dual degree program will be able to share up to 12 credit hours of coursework between degrees as well as simultaneously fulfill other degree requirements.

We encourage those interested in the Dual Degree Program to get familiar with:

The full curriculum for the MS in Biostatistics
The full curriculum for the Ph.D. in Applied and Industrial Mathematics
The special considerations for the Dual Degree program, including information on the sharing course credits and degree requirements between programs.

 

Students interested in applying to the Dual Degree program must apply to and be accepted by both the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics.  Letters of intent should be written to each department and state the student’s intent to take advantage of the Dual Degree Program.  If you have any questions about the Dual Degree Program, please feel free to contact the Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics or the Department of Mathematics.

 

The School of Public Health and Information Sciences is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health.  To learn more, visit the accreditation page.
