Master of Arts


Department requirements for the Master of Arts in Applied Statistics are the completion of 33 credits, including the two year-long sequences STAT 2630 -STAT 2640  and STAT 2131 -STAT 2132  mentioned above, at least three credits in consulting, four courses (12 credits) in statistical methods or theory taken from a list of choices, and an approved two-course sequence (6 credits) taken at the graduate level in a discipline other than statistics. Students in our MA Statistics and MA Applied Statistics are required to pass the Preliminary Evaluation, which is equivalent to receiving grades of B or higher in the four core courses (STAT 2630 , STAT 2640 , STAT 2131 , and STAT 2132 ). A student failing to meet the new grade requirement needs to re-take the necessary course(s).  Students are allowed to repeat the same course twice. They will be terminated from the master’s program if they fail to achieve a grade of B or higher on their second attempt.

The Master of Arts in Statistics differs from the Master of Arts in Applied Statistics by replacing the requirements of a two-course sequence in a discipline other than statistics and 3 credits in consulting with the requirement that three additional 3-credit graduate-level statistics courses be taken. Both master’s degrees require completion of 33 credits and the passing of the Preliminary Evaluation as explained about.
