The Statistics Practicum (MA 675 & MA 676) is the centerpiece of the MSSP program. Comprised of in-class instruction, hands-on consulting experience in the MSSP Consulting Services, and intensive partner projects with Boston-based organizations, the practicum provides students with an environment in which they integrate the theory, principles, and methods learned in other MSSP courses with actual practice.

In the MSSP Consulting Service and the semester-long partner projects, students gain direct and intensive experience doing the kinds of work they can expect to encounter after graduation. The MSSP approach is holistic, addressing the entire process – from asking the right questions in an initial client meeting, to providing advice and hands-on help, to delivering reproducible analyses, presentations, reports, and online interactive applications. MSSP students graduate with a professional portfolio of work, showcasing a broad range of consulting and collaborative experience.
