The Statistics and Data Science Graduate Interdisciplinary Program at the University of Arizona is a unique training program designed to focus and enhance statistical training and research across the UA campus. We administer both the M.S. (regular and an accelerated MS for UA Math undergrads) and Ph.D. degrees (regular track and statistical informatics track options) , as well as a Ph.D. Minor and a 12-unit Graduate Certificate, in Statistics and Data Science which includes a fully online Certificate program option.  The strength comes from the Interdisciplinary nature of the program.  Our faculty are from over 15 different departments and our PhD students minor in a large variety of programs.
