MS in Statistics

The MS degree program in statistics is designed for students who wish to pursue a career as a practicing statistician in industry, government, or academia. The degree is also valuable for people working in other fields who need mastery of a broad range of statistical methods.

The MS program consists of courses in both theoretical and applied statistics. An incoming graduate student who has some background in mathematics and statistics can reasonably expect to complete an MS program in four semesters of study.

Some of our MS graduates opt to work toward their PhD degrees. Of those that do not, nearly all are working in statistics-related jobs.
