A Master of Science in Health and Life Science Analytics will ground you in sound statistical methods and prepare you for a career in health analytics and the pharmaceutical industry. Through practical experience, you’ll apply those methods to solve everyday health and life science analytics problems drawing on valid public and private data sources. In your on-campus or online life science courses, you’ll gain proficiency in areas like analytical and predictive modeling, data acquisition, data mining, and healthcare information management systems. You’ll also explore epidemiology, health management, clinical research, clinical trials, health outcomes research, and learn to use modern analytical software. Working with a team, you’ll develop the skills to design, coordinate, conduct, and publicize an analytic strategy for structuring a current healthcare issue and solution.
