Applied Statistics (MS)
Loyola’s Master of Science in Applied Statistics emphasizes applied statistics and predictive modeling which gives students an advantage in evidence-based fields such as biomedical, environmental, marketing, educational, financial, and contract research (CRO) sectors. Our program can also be completed on a part-time basis and while working full-time.
The Master of Science in Applied Statistics requires 30 credit hours of coursework.

Students in graduate and professional programs can find their Academic Policies in Graduate and Professional Academic Standards and Regulations under their school. Any additional University Policies supercede school policies.
Upon completion of our MS program in Applied Statistics, students are expected to have:
- Mastered the art and science of choosing and/or developing the appropriate statistical model(s) for a given dataset-situation, and have mastered the skill of interpreting the chosen model.
- Received sufficient exposure to basic theorems and proofs used in introductory probability and statistical inference.
- Worked with data from application fields such as public/global health, medical, industrial and environmental research.
- Received training to ethically apply statistical training in the real world.
- Obtained hands-on experience and assimilated course material via our 2cr Statistical Consulting capstone/practicum class.
- Sufficiently mastered the course and practicum material to either obtain gainful employment in the field of attend a Ph.D. program
