Graduate students in the Department of Statistics build the skills required to conduct successful surveys, analyze risk and bring expertise to a variety of corporate, association and government agency settings. Through a curriculum that balances theory, application and computation, we prepare students to carry out research and methodology in their field of choice.

GW’s PhD in Statistics and MS in Statistics degrees are STEM-designated programs.



"I’ve been able to apply my learned skills in workplaces like PricewaterhouseCoopers and SRA International. I have no hesitation in recommending the statistics master’s program to anyone and everyone interested in statistics, be it theoretical or applied."
