Program Description

The Department of Statistics offers programs leading to a Ph.D. in statistics, a M.S. degree in applied statistics. The program is flexible enough to be individually planned around prior experience and in accord with professional goals.

During the first year of the program, master's and doctoral students are strongly encouraged to meet with each faculty member to discuss possible research topics. The student should select an advisory and examining committee by the end of the first year.

A joint master's degree in computer science and statistics may also be obtained. Graduate certificates in Statistics for non-majors and Big Data Applied Statistics Analysis are also available.
