We currently offer two Master's degrees:Old Chemistry Building across the Quad from Social Scienc

  1. The Master's in Statistical Science, a premier MS degree in statistics emphasising core expertise in  predictive modeling, Bayesian methods, machine learning, computational science and modern analytics linked to interdisciplinary applications. In addition to defining a premier graduate educational program at MS level, the MSS couples into the research leadership of Duke Statistical Science faculty. For some MSS students, the program defines a professional launch-pad for careers in modern statistical science and related areas. For others, it is a bridge to future PhD studies.
  2. The Master's in Statistical and Economic Modeling (MSEM). This unique program integrates the leading educational opportunities of Duke Statistical Science at the Master's level with those of the Duke Economics department. MSEM emphasises educational opportunities and studies geared towards professional careers in statistics and economics, as well as an entree path to potential future PhD studies. This unique program is jointly adminstered by the Departments of Statistical Science and Economics.    NOTE: The MSEM program will not be accepting applications for Fall 2017. If you are interested in studying economics and/or statistics at Duke, please consider applying either to the M.S. in Statistical Science or the M.A. in Economics. Both of these programs have flexible curricula that permit students to take some courses in both areas.

For enquiries about the MS in Statistical Science and/or the MSEM please email the MS Director in Statistical Science at msd@stat.duke.edu.
