Frequently Asked Questions

How are major advisors assigned?

If you have a preference for a faculty member to be your major advisor, please send your request to dus@stat.duke.edu once you declare the major. If not, you will be assigned an advisor based on availability of advisors. If you don't have a specific person in mind, but you would like to be matched with someone with similar interests, email the DUS to set up an appointment.
