Have completed a course in multivariable calculus, a course in calculus-based probability and statistics and a mathematics “proof” course, although a major in either mathematics or statistics is preferred. A GPA of at least 2.75 is required in both mathematics and statistics course work. Students without such a background may be admitted to the program after meeting requirements specified by the department.
The M.A. in Applied Statistics requires the completion of 31-34 hours of coursework in mathematics and statistics to be distributed among required, restricted elective, elective, and research courses. Approval by the student’s advisor of each semester’s courses prior to registration is recommended. Final approval for the degree by the coordinator of advising is required.
At least two hours of thesis or research study in either mathematics or statistics are required. Students will, with the approval of the coordinator of advising, select a supervisor to direct the thesis or research study.
