Facilities for Graduate WorkFacilities are available through the Department of Mathematics. Areas of StudyGraduate study in statistics is offered in the areas of mathematical statistics, statistical methodology, and statistical computation and probability. Further information is available from the graduate adviser. Graduate Studies CommitteeThe following faculty members served on the Graduate Studies Committee in the spring semester 20002001.
Degree RequirementsA total of thirtythree semester hours is required, including at least twentyone semester hours of graduatelevel coursework, of which three hours must be earned in the report course, Mathematical Statistics 398R. A minor of at least six semester hours is required, which may be in another area of mathematics, such as applied mathematics, or in a related discipline, such as actuarial science, operations research and industrial engineering, or educational psychology. No more than nine semester hours of upperdivision coursework may be counted toward the degree; these must be divided between the major and the minor field, with no more than six hours in either. Upon admission to the program, the student should demonstrate substantial background in mathematics and statistical knowledge equivalent to that acquired in a first upperdivision course in probability and statistics. Deficiencies may be made up by taking courses suggested by the graduate adviser. Courses required for the major in statistics are Mathematics 384C, 384D, 384E, and 384G. A qualifying examination in statistics, designed to test the student's knowledge of the basic principles of statistical theory and methodology, must be completed. This examination is normally taken at the end of one year of study. In general, one and onehalf to two years are necessary to complete the Master of Science in Statistics degree program.
