The Department of Statistics offers several graduate degree programs, including the MS and PhD in Statistics and the Master of Applied Statistics (MAS) degree. It jointly administers a unique Interdisciplinary PhD Program in Biostatistics with the Division of Biostatistics in the College of Public Health.
Specific areas of excellence include Bayesian statistics, spatio-temporal statistics, statistical learning and biostatistics.
Research is directed toward modern and emerging areas of interest. A large portion of the department’s faculty and students are involved in interdisciplinary research and make significant scientific contributions beyond the field of statistics. Faculty members are highly successful at securing competitive grants from various research funding agencies, including the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH). In addition, the department is a partner in administering the NSF-funded Mathematical Biosciences Institute on the Ohio State campus.
