Graduate Programs

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

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. degree; a completely new application is required.

  • The Ph.D. program in Statistics and Data Science
  • The terminal M.A. program in Statistics, which is 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.
