The Department of Statistics

logo2.pngThe Department was originally formed in 1964 as the Department of Statistics and Computer Science and remained such until 1984. We have retained that strong emphasis on computing, and we have maintained a three-fold mission of teaching, research, and service. Our teaching has provided students with a broad foundation in statistical theory and applications. Such training has enabled our graduates to earn jobs in government, all branches of industry, and academia.

Just ask any faculty member in this department – we will tell you that statistics is a very exciting discipline. Every one of us will give credit to the departments we came from for excellent training! It is our goal to offer you the best of all of those departments as we train you for a future in statistics.

We offer several means for earning a Master of Science (MS) degree in statistics, as well as a rigorous program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. Each program emphasizes BOTH theory AND applications, because a good statistician must have training in both.
