Through this joint Emory College and Rollins program, students can complete a bachelor of arts degree at Emory College (most likely with a major concentration in Mathematics and Computer Sciences,) and a master of science in public health (MSPH) in biostatistics at Rollins in five years.
Students typically apply for admission to the program early in their junior year at Emory College, and learn of their acceptance into the program later that year. Accepted students can enroll for up to 12 credit hours during their senior year. Courses students take during their senior year count toward degree requirements for both their BA/BS degree and their MSPH degree.
The Department of Biostatistics will review student applications (and may choose to interview them as part of the process) and make the admissions decision in consultation with the Department of Mathematics and Computer Sciences.
