The Department offers a broad training program comprised of the main areas of statistical theory (with emphasis on foundations, Bayes theory, decision theory, nonparametric statistics), probability theory, stochastic processes, asymptotics, information theory, machine learning, data analysis, statistical computing, and graphical methods.
With this background, graduates of the program have found excellent positions in industry, and government. See the list of M.A. alumni for examples.
NEW for 2020: Pending final approval, we will offer both the 8-course M.A. in Statistics and a new 12-course M.S. in Statistics & Data Science.
