About this Degree

The Statistics MS from University of Tennessee Knoxville is only offered through the Intercollegiate Graduate Statistics and Data Science Program (IGSDSP) and enables students to earn an MS in statistics simultaneously with a doctoral degree in another department.

The program is administered by an executive committee, consisting of college representatives from all colleges with approved programs, with advisory input from the program faculty.
