Note: We are currently working on reshaping our departments. One of these changes has been to establish two distinct departments from the former Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department. Please pardon our dust as web pages are brought up to date.

  • Graduate programs:

            • Statistical Science Ph.D./M.S.

              A webpage for the new graduate program in Statistical Science will be available soon.


              Programmatic information for the Statistical Science MS and PhD programs is available from the registrar's webpage 




              (the description is under the Applied Mathematics and Statistics department which has been disestablished, but all the information under the Statistical Science program is up to date).


              There will be no more admissions to the Statistics track of the Statistics and Applied Mathematics (SAM) program. The Statistical Science program is the option at UCSC for graduate studies in Statistics at either the MS or PhD level.


              For more information, please contact the Graduate Director Athanasios Kottas (

            • Designated Emphasis in Statistics
