Department of Statistics Unitmark
Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences

This program, which typically takes 5 years, allows students to pursue a Ph.D. that combines Ph.D.-level training in statistics with a solid understanding of the elements of neuroscience, as in the Ph.D. Program in Neural Computation. Students complete the requirements for a Ph.D. in Statistics while also fulfilling the core requirements for the Ph.D. Program in Neural Computation by taking courses in cellular, cognitive, and systems neuroscience, as well as computational neuroscience, and gaining exposure to methods of data collection in at least one experimental laboratory.
