MS Applied Statistics


Course Description

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers the Master of Science degree in Applied Statistics. The graduate program is designed primarily to prepare graduates for careers in business, industry, or government, but can be tailored to provide a solid foundation for doctoral studies in statistics. The graduate program in Applied Statistics is open to persons with bachelor’s degrees in a variety of fields besides mathematics and statistics. The prior mathematical training needed for entrance into the program has been kept to a minimum to accommodate students with undergraduate majors in fields such as biology, business, or one of the social sciences. The department makes provision for part-time degree candidates by offering all required courses in the late afternoon or evening.

Early consultation with the statistics graduate advisor is recommended, since the advisor works closely with the student in every phase of the program.

Admissions Requirements:

Applicants for admission are expected to meet the general requirements for admission to graduate study as established by the School of Graduate Studies. Applicants should have completed a calculus sequence that includes multivariable calculus and a course in linear or matrix algebra. Some experience in computer programming and enough background in probability and statistics to begin basic graduate courses in statistics is also required. This normally means one or two prior courses in probability and statistics, depending on content and level. Applicants with insufficient preparation may be admitted on the condition that they complete certain prerequisite work to be specified by the department at the time of admission. Because of course sequencing, it is best to enter the program at the beginning of fall semester.

Program Requirements:

The Master of Science degree in Applied Statistics may be earned by satisfying the degree requirements described below. The Applied Statistics program allows students considerable latitude in designing a course of study. This program is primarily intended to prepare students for professional employment in business, industry, or government; however, it can also form a solid foundation for doctoral study.

All master’s degree candidates are required to pass a comprehensive written examination which must be taken at least one semester before the expected date of graduation. The examination is ordinarily offered during fall semester.

In addition to the requirements of the Graduate School, the following departmental requirements must be met to earn a degree in Applied Statistics. Full-time students normally take two years to complete this program.
