For many students, earning an undergraduate degree is not the end of the educational road. Instead, some individuals wish to deepen their knowledge about certain subjects by enrolling in a master’s program. Taking approximately two or three years to complete, a master’s degree is usually awarded after a student has already obtained a bachelor’s.

Since virtually every discipline on the planet relies on statistical data, individuals may wonder, what is a Master in Statistics? After enrolling in these programs, students typically decide which statistical approaches they wish to study. Often, program participants take courses in data analysis, statistical information, applied statistics, process management, business administration and other similar subjects. They may work closely with a student advisor to create research projects and write comprehensive papers. They may also participate in a capstone course or internship prior to graduation.

Students generally learn statistical computation, business analysis and project management skills that serve them well through both personal and professional challenges. They may also deepen their abilities to think critically and analyze complicated problems.

The duration of the graduate program, the school that hosts it and other factors determine the exact cost to earn a Master in Statistics. Since students require specific information from prospective universities prior to registering, discussing tuition and fees is often a wise approach.

Statisticians, business analysts, business administrators and executive officers often hold a Master in Statistics. Still, graduates of a statistics program often pursue careers outside of business. Some work in academia, choosing to be professors, researchers, design assistants or faculty leaders. Other graduates work in government, electing to serve as military officers, inspectors or managers. Still others continue learning by enrolling in a doctoral program instead of entering the workforce.

Those who want to pursue a master’s degree in statistics have a few options. Generally, these programs exist through local universities, online schools and correspondence courses. To begin, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
