  2. 2. About the program: The Master’s degree in biostatistics is a three-semester program (plus the intervening summer) for full-time students. The program runs from August until December of the following year, and requires a mixture of course work, internship, and research. Adjustments to the schedule are planned for part-time students. Academic requirements: Students are required to complete 32 credits that must include 14 fundamental credits, 10 track credits, 3 practicum credits, and 2 consulting credits. Additionally, students will attend the biweekly seminar series. The minimum prerequisites are calculus and linear algebra. Students can fulfill these prerequisites by taking summer courses at Georgetown University, such as MATH 137 and MATH 150. More questions?
