Graduate Programs

The Department offers several graduate programs, one leading to the new Ph.D. degree in Statistics and Data Science, two leading to an M.A. degree in Statistics, and one leading to an M.S. degree in Statistics and Data Science.

The programs are administered in different ways, even though they share many courses. Unlike at some universities, there is no automatic admission into the Ph.D. program for students who complete the terminal M.A./M.S. degrees; a completely new application is required.

  • The Ph.D. program in Statistics and Data Science
  • The terminal M.A. and M.S. programs in Statistics/Statistics and Data Science, which are open to students not already enrolled at Yale.
  • The M.A. en route to a Ph.D., which is for students already enrolled in a Yale Ph.D. program.
