The Master of Applied Statistics emphasizes practical methods in statistics, focusing on applications and computational aspects, rather than theory. The goal of this degree is to enable students to start working as practicing statisticians in industry or government immediately after graduation.  Students will receive a strong background in statistical computing while completing this degree. Full time students complete the M.A.S. degree in eleven months; however, this degree may also be completed part time, either online or on campus. Students who succeed in the field of statistics typically have strong quantitative skills, analytical minds, and like to help other people solve problems.
