Career Exploration

From internships to community engagement to research opportunities, there are a number of options for graduate students to gain real-world experience.


Graduate students are encouraged to gain real-world experience as part of their statistical training. Internships provide students with an opportunity to develop core competencies associated with CLA’s Career Readiness initiative, preparing them for successful careers after graduation. To assist in this endeavor, the School of Statistics continuously seeks out partnerships with companies that allow students to apply cutting-edge data science techniques and statistical methodologies to address business needs. 

Research Opportunities

Collaborations with other units are possible through faculty-sponsored projects and students who wish to work a semester with the school's institute as a consultant. Please contact the director of graduate studies for more information.
