The Statistics Concentration in the Communication MA/PhD program enables students to develop expertise in applied statistical skills and tools for carrying out quantitative communication research. The concentration is largely built around a curriculum developed by the Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences (CSSS; course code: CS&SS) and is similar to other concentrations and/or tracks. Students who complete the Statistics Concentration in Communication will have advanced training in statistics for communication and social science research relevant to their own research needs. A Letter of Recognition is awarded by the CSSS to students who complete the concentration and students can advertise their completion of the concentration on their CVs as a signal of their quantitative training.
Details about the track and the requirements are available on the page about the track on the CSSS website. The Statistics Concentration in Communication Committee consists of Benjamin Mako Hill (Chair) and Katy Pearce. Any students interested in pursuing the track should coordinate with them.
