Program Description

The Computational Science and Statistics PhD program provides intensive preparation for careers in research, industry, or academia. The Master of Science in Mathematics prepares graduates for positions in industry, teaching, or doctoral programs and the Master of Science in Statistics serves as preparation for a career in research, industry, or education, or as a springboard to more advanced graduate work.  A specialization in Statistics is offered within the MS in Mathematics program.  Also available to students in all graduate programs on campus are Graduate Minors in Statistics for both Master’s Degree and PhD candidates. Please contact the department for details related to Graduate Minors.
