About

We have the tools to help you succeed. 

Distance Graduate Programs

We have outstanding on-campus graduate and undergraduate programs, but we understand that not every student seeking a statistics education can relocate to Columbia. That's why we offer a completely online graduate certificate and a master's degree in applied statistics. Our program comes highly recommended by alumni, is one of the oldest programs in the country and is almost completely taught by tenured or tenure-track faculty. 

 

Statistical Consulting

Our Stats Lab is a great place to get real-world experience. Our faculty and students have conducted research for numerous governmental and non-governmental organizations as well as for other departments on campus. 

 

Faculty Research

Our tenured and tenure-track faculty participate in over $10 million in collaborative research with University of South Carolina and other universities. That means more research opportunities for undergraduates and graduate students, who authored over 35 papers with faculty members between 2013 and 2017.
