The Master of Arts in Statistics provides advanced preparation in fundamental statistical theory and methods through a combination of traditional courses and electives in addition to modern topics in computation and data science. The program prepares students for positions in the fields of education or industry, or for future graduate study leading to a PhD. Students graduating with an MA in Statistics are expected to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of probability theory, mathematical statistics, and stochastic processes.
- Demonstrate the ability to apply linear and generalized linear models to data and interpret the results.
- Demonstrate knowledge over a range of topics selected from probability theory, statistical methods, or computation.
