Going further, doing more

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics offers the Master's of Science in Applied Statistics degree beginning Fall 2018.

The objectives of the program are to prepare students for employment as an applied statistician in government, industrial, commercial or private sectors, or entrance into a doctoral program in statistics, biostatistics, environmental statistics, or other programs that make extensive use of statistics.

The program requires 24 credits of course work and 6 credits of project/thesis.
