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.
The department also provides courses for students engaged in graduate studies in other disciplines that require statistics and for individuals requiring specialized statistical skills in the workplace. We also provide instruction in statistics for 3,000 undergraduate students each year.
The department currently has 16 full-time faculty and two visiting faculty, around 30 master's students and 30 PhD students. PhD students are sponsored by research or teaching assistantships or Mellon fellowships. All of them include full-tuition scholarships, a stipend and health insurance.
Masters in Applied Statistics
The Master of Arts and Master of Science degrees in Applied Statistics provide students with the necessary background to seek employment in statistics or a related field.
