  • Description:
  • Students in the PhD program take core courses on the theory and application of probability and statistics during their first year. The second year typically includes additional course work and a transition to research leading to a dissertation. PhD thesis topics are diverse and varied, reflecting the scope of faculty research interests. Many students are involved in interdisciplinary research, and there are two special concentrations available: in Communication, Computation, and Statistics, and in Computational and Genomic Biology. There is also a Ph.D. in Biostatistics, offered jointly with the School of Public Health (for which a separate admissions application to the Program in Biostatistics is required).

    The MA program includes both students who are admitted directly into the department and students obtaining advanced degrees in other departments at Berkeley. Course work is typically tailored to individual interests, and credit toward the degree can be earned by related course work in other departments.
