Program Overview

The federal statistics certificate is intended to respond to the need for broad training in statistics, survey methods, and data analysis, including graphics and data visualization. The program is extremely flexible and can be tailored to the needs of students within the federal statistical sector. It is also intended to be responsive to the needs of those in state and local governments, and those in the private sector involved in the collection, interpretation, or statistical analysis of federal data.


Students who enroll in a certificate program will receive state-of-the art scientific and practical information in cutting-edge areas. All courses are taught by our distinguished faculty with years of experience in their respective fields or research and practice. As graduate student at Mason you will have access to the vast resources of our library and the open lab facilities in the Volgenau School.

Graduate certificates may be pursued on a full-time or part-time basis.
