You must have heard this line - While raw data is concrete and objective, the creative applications of that data are limitless. It basically dictates that learning from data is both science and art. The science of learning from data is basically called “Statistics.”

So simply asking, is statistics available in top US universities or not? And the answer is of-course it is. You can get many master programs that are available in statistics. Not just the dedicated subject but it is involved in most number of different courses, probably more involved than computer science itself. If you look at it, the best ones are -

  • MS in Statistics
  • Statistical Science
  • Statistics and Machine Learning
  • Analytics
  • Statistics In mathematics

The most obvious choices for you here are MS in Statistics and statistical science masters. They are directly involved with the science of learning from data plus these ones would be better to get a direct job in this field. MS in Statistics is one of the most popular statistical master programs abroad. So automatically, there will be more applicants, just something you should know.

Statistical science is a full range of contemporary statistical presentation. It is mostly targeted by already interested students. Don’t know if you are one of them, but if you are, it is a very good masters. It is one of the core masters in statistics. If you are interested in the subject itself, it can help you to get relevant jobs that will mostly revolve around statistics.

While these two are the core masters option, there are many others. Like almost every technical course, it includes statistics at some level. It's just that few of them are very connected to these topics. These are the ones that are on the list as the last three. Basically any analytical master degree is highly infused with statistics.

The other aspect of your question can be the topic itself as the science of learning from data. There are countless books on this very topic that deal with statistics foundations and analyzing data. Most of them have a conceptual approach so you learn it with a perspective rather than as a general subject. If you like to read one, you can find these easily just by typing the art & science of learning from data.

Today’s organizational implications are significant, this makes a high demand for data and statistics professionals. If you would like to learn more about this subject or day looking for a statistics masters abroad, let me know. I can help in this matter as I have some experience with technical courses in foreign universities.

Hope this helps!
