Graduate Program

Statistics provides the reasoning and methods for producing and understanding data. Statisticians are specialists, but statistics demands they be generalists as well. Working in statistics enables you to combine your interest with almost any other field.

Statisticians provide crucial guidance in determining what information is reliable and which predictions can be trusted. They often search for clues to the solution of a scientific mystery and keep investigators from being misled by false impressions.

A master's degree or PhD is often recommended or required for higher-level positions. The University of Akron’s Graduate Statistics Program focuses on applied statistics and the master’s degree is in high demand with expected increase over the next decade.
