PhD in Statistical Science - new - fall 2018
The PhD in Statistical Science is meant to give students both a strong background in statistics and a working knowledge in a secondary field. Core (6) and elective (5) statistics classes offered through the Department of Mathematics & Statistics are taken in addition to five classes from a partnering allied department, such as biology, economics, education, mathematics, or psychology. At least one member of the student’s committee must be from the appropriate allied department in the student’s field of research. This creates an interdisciplinary curriculum designed to teach students to develop new statistical methods to solve real life problems that arise in their chosen area of concentration.
