MPH in Biostatistics

The Masters of Public Health in Biostatistics program at Kent State University Department of Biostatistics, Environmental Health Sciences & Epidemiology trains students in the quantitative science of health data collection, storage, retrieval, analysis, and interpretation. Graduates of our MPH in Biostatistics program are equipped to use statistical methods to design and analyze health-related surveys and experiments for the purpose of improving health.

Similar to our other four MPH programs, the purpose of our Biostatistics program is to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to pursue career opportunities in this public health field. The College of Public Health faculty members have a variety of research interests, including the application of biostatistical analysis to better understand critical health problems such as adolescent substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, cancer, and Alzheimer’s Disease.

  • Hospitals
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • State and local health departments
  • Federal health agencies
  • Biotechnology companies.
