If numbers drive you, let Applied Statistics be your destination. Applied Statistics is a challenging field. With a Manderson degree, even when the numbers are stacked against them, our graduates are ready.
The candidate for a graduate degree in Applied Statistics is normally expected to have completed courses in mathematics equivalent to two semesters of undergraduate calculus, and to have a working knowledge of computer programming and linear or matrix algebra.
Format and assessment
The M.S. degree in Applied Statistics requires 30 hours, half of which are track specific. There are two different tracks within this degree. These include: Statistics and Analytics. There are five required courses common to both tracks of study.
The electives may be earned in additional coursework with the approval of a faculty advisor. The program of related courses may vary from student to student and depends on the student's interests and academic background. When most of the coursework is completed, the student must pass a written comprehensive examination OR a professional exam such as the Actuarial P Exam, SAS Predictive Modeler Exam, or the ASQ Certified Quality Engineer Exam.
