Traditional Programs

Master of Science and Doctoral Programs

Note: We are planning to admit students for the Fall 2021 semester.

With the recent booms in data analytics, data science, and statistics, it is often a challenge to figure out which program is the best for you. We find that our students often answer yes to at least one of the following:

  • Are you an undergraduate student majoring in mathematics, physics, computer science, or statistics?
  • Did you enjoy your calculus sequence?
  • Are you interested in working with real data or performing data analytics, while using your mathematical background?
  • Do you enjoy programming, and find yourself more intrigued by the results than by the code?

Our MS and PhD programs will provide you with a broad training with foundations in theoretical statistics, and training for applications to real data. This provides an opportunity for students to combine their mathematical background with applications and computational tools to help solve real world problems.

Prospective Student Virtual Visits

  • Graduate Programs in Statistics: Graduate programs in data analytics, data science, and statistics cover a variety of overlapping subject areas, making it difficult to decipher the best program for you. The University of Kentucky offers traditional and online programs with a variety of focus areas and funding opportunities. Please join us for a Zoom information session to learn about the different programs we offer, and to hear about the positions of our recent alumni.
  • Graduate School and Career Opportunities in STEM Fields: Even amidst the pandemic, graduate students that are knowledgeable in data science, statistics, and data analytics are in high demand as companies/institutions continue to hire new STEM employees.  However, the media coverage these fields receive makes it hard to decipher which graduate programs lead to which jobs.  In this session, we will discuss the shortages in job candidates across STEM fields, discuss some unusual and rarely talked about opportunities for careers in STEM, and discuss strategies to determine which graduate programs will get you where you want to go!
