The Department of Statistics works in conjunction with the Data Science Program to offer a combined Master of Science in Statistics and Graduate Certificate in Data Science degree program. The combined program allows students to complete the master’s degree on an accelerated timeline by double-counting six credits toward both degrees. 

Students in the combined program must complete four data science courses, four statistics courses and six additional upper-level statistics elective courses. To apply, students must submit a dual enrollment application form through the Columbian College.


All requirements for both the MS in Statistics and the Graduate Certificate in Data Science must be fulfilled.
