One major component of public health that some students like to focus for their future careers is Biostatistics. MPH – Biostatistics programs were designed to help bring important subjects such as Statistics, Mathematics, and Biology to educational programs in public health. As you probably already know, effective public health programming takes into consideration the prevalence of different diseases and illnesses, risk factors that are present within different aspects and groups in society, and the analysis of change after implementation of helpful public health programs.
The MPH program in Biostatistics can help prepare students for careers that involve research and testing in the field of public health. As part of the curriculum, students can learn how to create studies by forming a hypothesis, design a study by testing that hypothesis, and analyzing the results of their study in order to provide helpful insight into different ideas and programs designed to be effective in the public domain.
