Applied Statistics - Certificate
The Department of Statistics at Texas A&M University offers an Applied Statistics Certificate. The certificate is designed to provide graduate students in disciplines other than statistics and professionals in the workforce with basic knowledge in statistics which will provide them with the training to design experiments, properly collect data, and finally to apply the appropriate models and procedures to summarize data, test hypotheses, and build forecasting models. The participants in the certificate program can select from several areas of emphasis including, but not limited to, biostatistics, data mining and statistical computations. The Applied Statistics Certificate accepts enrollment by the local students in disciplines other than statistics while they continue to pursue their current degree program with no additional application process. It is also designed for working professionals who need statistical knowledge but are not seeking a formal degree in statistics or another field.
This program is also approved for delivery via asynchronous distance education technology.
