The required 90 credit points (CP) have to be gained from compulsory modules (Pflichtmodule), elective modules in statistics/biostatistics (Wahlpflichtmodule, these can in certain cases be in mathematics) and, elective modules in a field of science (Wahlmodule). Note that one CP corresponds to approximately 30 hours of work. The following table shows the detailed minimal requirements.
|- Coursework||34 CP|
|- Master’s thesis||30 CP|
|- Master’s exam||3 CP|
|Elective (statistical) modules||23 CP|
|Elective modules in a field of application||none required since Fall 2020|
For a list of Master's theses see here.
The master program Biostatistics (90 CP) can also be combined with any minor (30 CP) from this list, except for Applied Probability and Statistics.
