The GIDP in Statistics offers interdisciplinary courses of study leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in Statistics (regular track or statistical informatics track), a 12-unit Graduate Certificate, and a Ph.D. minor for students already registered into a Ph.D. program other than Statistics at the UA.

Our mission is to develop the next generation of data scientists, trained to meet the challenges of modern interdisciplinary data extraction, analysis, and interpretation.

We have seen applications from those in the high tech industries (largely Raytheon Missile Systems), technical staff involved in data intensive science looking to improve their knowledge of modern statistics, and former high school math/stat teacher looking for a change in career.

With such an extensive and diverse set of backgrounds, the consideration for admission of these applicants requires an examination beyond the transcript to the nature of their work experience.

The Statistics and Data Science (Certificate NDP) at University of Arizona may be completed either online or on campus.

Department

The Graduate College sponsors several Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs) in addition to the many interdisciplinary possibilities available through regular graduate degree programs.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
