Master of Science in Statistics


Students are encouraged to attend the statistics colloquium. We invite renowned scholars in different fields to present their research, at a level that can be understandable and motivating. It is a unique chance for students to have a broader perspective on statistics and computational sciences.

Every year our graduate students participate, present, and often win awards at important statistical conferences like the Joint Statistical Meetings and the New England Statistical Symposium. The department aims to fund one conference for each student over the 2 years duration of the program. Chances of winning one of the travel awards are higher if students present a poster or give a talk.

During the summer of the first year, students regularly find internship opportunities and at the end of their program receive attractive job offers in the industry as data scientists, statisticians, biostatisticians, or continue their education in Ph.D. programs in statistics and related fields.
