Earn your master's in statistics online

Prepare to meet the growing demands of today's data-dominated employment landscape, and become more equipped to make an impact in nearly any industry, in nearly any situation where people need answers. CSU's online statistics master's program helps you learn to ask the right questions, so you can accurately design and implement statistical procedures, and produce precise and meaningful results.

Gain the skills to turn data into actionable information

CSU's online master's in statistics prepares you to confidently measure, control, and communicate uncertainty. You will also gain the tools to effectively present findings to help guide organizational, scientific, and societal advances.

Hone your analytical skills and become an essential resource to meet industry needs. As a graduate student in the online statistics program, you will:

  • Develop a breadth of tools to help you design effective studies, make inferences from raw data, and translate those inferences into meaningful contexts.
  • Learn to use graphics and data visualization to communicate actionable information to those without statistical backgrounds to help organizations drive important decisions.

Choose from two areas of specialization

Students in this program can choose to specialize in either statistical science or data science. Both of these specializations share a set of common coursework and also share some of the same electives. However, students will also complete coursework unique to their chosen area of focus.

An accredited graduate degree program for practicing statisticians

CSU's Master of Applied Statistics is designed to enable students to start working as practicing statisticians in industry, government, or academia immediately after graduation. Taught by the same faculty, and featuring the same curriculum as the on-campus program, you earn the same regionally accredited degree as on-campus students. Considered a terminal degree, this program is intended for those who plan to pursue a career outside of academia, rather than pursue a Ph.D.
