Waterloo and Pitt Biostatistics Masters program comparison

Recommended Posts

The University of Waterloo has a Masters program called MMath in Biostatistics. They seem to cover 7 courses and a thesis dissertation. From their website, it is not clear what the duration of their program is (two years?). On the other hand, the University of Pittsburgh has a reputed public health school which offers a 40-credit MS in Biostatistics from the Department of Biostatistics that includes thesis dissertation and two years of coursework. I'm wondering which of these two programs might be a better preparation for a PhD in Biostatistics. I have found positive responses from the professors of both programs, although that doesn't guarantee admission, I'm just thinking ahead.
