The department offers three graduate programs: a Ph.D. program, a M.S. program and a Master of Applied Statistics (M.A.S.) program. The M.A.S. program is described here. The M.S. and Ph.D. programs are structured around three core course sequences that introduce students to the science of data: theoretical statistics, data analysis, and statistical computing. This balance reflects the scale and complexity of problems that statisticians are now routinely called to address. As with the undergraduate program, the interest of faculty members in various application areas weaves itself throughout the graduate offerings.
Courses and workshops for secondary school teachers of statistics are also offered in order to promote sound statistics pedagogy throughout the curriculum.
