Learning outcomes

The Master of Science in Statistics at The University of Rhode Island is designed as a modern 2-year graduate program in statistical methods. In the last few years our program has grown, and it has attracted students from different countries, backgrounds, and with diverse research interests. 

Compared to other Masters programs, we have a very favorable student to faculty ratio (2 to 1) and this allows our students to receive more personalized attention and guidance from their professors. Students can choose at the time of application between a “thesis option” and a “non-thesis option”. The choice can be reversed at a later time. See below for more details on the two alternatives.
