Our statistics program leads to a Master of Science degree, offering students the perspectives and skills necessary to work as a statistician or data analyst in various sectors of the economy (banking, defense, health care, pharmaceuticals, government, insurance, biotech, agriculture, and many more). Students also have all the tools to continue their statistics education and obtain a Ph.D. if desired. The department has ready access to state-of-the-art computing and library resources.
The program also has an internship program for interested students. This cooperative effort trains students by a combination of formal university graduate courses and hands-on application in an industrial setting. The objective of the internship is to introduce the student to the application of applied statistics as a complement to the theoretical foundations learned in the classroom. Delaware’s many chemical, pharmaceutical and industrial companies provide a unique opportunity for statistics interns because of the problem-solving nature of their work, and the availability of experienced statisticians to guide and mentor our students.
