Program Description:

In addition to making significant research contributions, our faculty have a strong commitment to teaching and working with students. Our location in the nation's capital makes possible graduate training that effectively integrates a solid foundation in mathematical and statistical theory with direct participation in research and applications, often arising from practical experience with problems of national scope. Departmental ties to various governmental agencies such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration, and National Institutes of Health offer students exposure to varied practical, civic, and even cultural issues that require skills in the formation, analysis, and solution of quantitative problems.


American University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association, an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the CHEA.
