The Master's in Statistical Science (MSS) is a 2-year graduate degree program that provides a modern, comprehensive education in statistical theory, methods and computation. The MSS is attractive to students interested in professional careers in industry, business and government, as well as those interested in bridging to Ph.D. studies in statistics and related areas.
- Courses and projects emphasize stochastic model-based approaches to problems of inference and prediction, highlighting Bayesian and Machine Learning methods
- You develop skills and expertise in modeling complex and potentially massive data sets and advanced computational methods while gaining exposure to a broad range of application contexts
- In-house professional development opportunities and career counseling prepare students for a wide variety of highly competitive career in statistics and allied fields.
- You demonstrate proficiency in applied statistics through a period of formal practical training via either a mentored industrial internship or an applied research project supervised by Statistical Science faculty.
