Degree RequirementsMaster of Arts. Most students take thirty semester hours of coursework (ten courses) and the report course. The ten courses are divided into major and minor areas. The major consists of mathematics courses, and the minor area consists of courses that are related to mathematics. Students should consult the graduate adviser about the courses that are allowable for the minor. There must be six to eight courses in the major area and two to four courses in the minor area. A special concentration in actuarial mathematics is available. Master of Science in Statistics. Administered by the Department of Mathematics, the Master of Science in Statistics is under the supervision of the Graduate Studies Committee in statistics. A description of the degree program is given here. Doctor of Philosophy. A detailed description of the procedure for admission to candidacy is available from the graduate adviser. Each student is first required to pass preliminary examinations. A small advisory committee is then set up to approve the student's choice of coursework and to specify the foreign language requirement. This committee administers an advanced examination in the chosen area of specialization. The preliminary examinations are given once each semester. The advanced examination may be given by mutual agreement of the student and the advisory committee at any time within a year after the student has passed the preliminary examinations; the student must pass the advanced examination before admission to candidacy will be approved.
