Statistics (Certificate NDP)
Our mission of the Statistics (Certificate NDP) at University of Arizona is to develop the next generation of data scientists, trained to meet the challenges of modern interdisciplinary data extraction, analysis, and interpretation.
|Full-time Duration:||6 months|
|Starting in:||August, January|
|Tuition Fee:||$10,063 per semester|
|Location:||Tucson, United States; Online|
Certificate students are often nontraditional students, several years removed from the university education and possessing considerable work experience.
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 (Certificate NDP) at University of Arizona may be completed either online or on campus.
The Graduate College sponsors several Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs) in addition to the many interdisciplinary possibilities available through regular graduate degree programs. GIDPs transcend departmental boundaries by facilitating cutting edge teaching and research at the nexus of traditional disciplines. The high value placed on interdisciplinary research and education is indicative of The University of Arizona’s enthusiasm and commitment to fostering innovation and creativity among its faculty and students.

“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?”
