B.S. in Mathematics [Pharma. Biostatistics Concn.]
FDU offers a unique mathematics concentration that prepares students to enter the pharmaceutical industry as an entrylevel biostatistician or statistical programmer, or to enter a graduate program in statistics or public health. The market for pharmaceutical statisticians continues to be very strong, and the demand for experienced statisticians is constant. The drugdevelopment process is highly regulated and requires statisticians and statistical programmers throughout the long development cycle time of seven or more years per product. Add the growing demands of biotechnology and genebased research, and you have the makings of a long, interesting and rewarding career within an international industry. During the junior and senior years, students are given a firm background in statistical methods and models, experimental design and statistical programming. They will explore pharmaceutical applications using some of the same software tools used by industry (SAS, ORACLE, SPlus).
