Faculty in statistics have a range of interests from theoretical, to methodological, to applied. We regularly consult and collaborate with our colleagues throughout the university and participate in multidisciplinary research. We offer a statistics concentration for undergraduate math majors, a Masters degree, and a statistics specialization for PhD students. The Monday afternoon statistics seminar features both theoretical and applied talks and internal and external speakers.

    Statistical Consulting and Collaboration Services

    Who we are

    SCCS provides statistical consulting and collaboration to researchers at UMass, the Five Colleges, and elsewhere, through individual meetings and support for interdisciplinary research projects. The SCCS staff are statistics faculty and students at UMass and the Five Colleges.

    SCCS welcomes researchers who have collected data and would like help finding effective analyses. However, SCCS strongly encourages collaboration early in the planning stages of a research project whenever possible.

    Who we serve

    We serve researchers from UMass, the Five Colleges, local governments, non-profits, and external, for-profit entities. We serve both faculty and students who are conducting research. We do not assist students with homework.

    Our rates

    Our rates depend on the type of researcher.
    Group A: from UMass, the Five Colleges, local governments, non-profits.
    Group B: from external, for-profit entities.

    Our rates also depend on the type of statistical collaborator.
