University of Pittsburgh

Who we are...

The Department of Statistics is in the School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.

Founded in 1997, we're a young and dynamic department. Our degree programs lead to the Master of Arts or Master of Science in either Statistics or Applied Statistics and the Doctor of Philosophy in Statistics. These degrees may be pursued on a full- or part-time basis. More >

Where we go...

Many career opportunities are available to students of statistics.

The private sector needs statisticians in areas from management to medicine; the government depends on statisticians across many agencies; and colleges and universities require statisticians in areas such as training and research.

What we do...

Statistics is the art of making informed decisions in the face of uncertainty.

Our research strengths, aside from traditional interests in multivariate analysis, reliability, meta-analysis and time series, are now in the areas of neurostatistics, statistics in psychiatry, and clinical trials methodology. We collaborate throughout the University. More >
