The Applied Statistics Graduate Program (MSAS) has been training students for careers in industry, government, and academia for over 50 years. For many students, this degree will represent a final statistics degree, offering them greater potential for professional advancement. For some, this degree will be a stepping-stone toward a Ph.D. in statistics or in a related field. The flexibility of the program permits students to take courses in related areas such as applied mathematics. Click here to request additional information.
Candidates for the Master’s degree have six years to complete their degree after starting the program. Students are to consult with the Director of the Applied Statistics Graduate Program to formulate a program of study suitable to their individual needs. Degree requirements may be subject to change.

Supplementary Information (below)
Students may transfer a maximum of 6 credits from other graduate programs toward their MSAS degree, provided these courses correspond to existing courses in the Applied Statistics curriculum and are within the six year time frame allotted for the degree. The request for transfer must be presented and approved at the time of admission to the program as a matriculated student. This request should be in the form of a letter, written by the student and addressed to the Director of the Applied Statistics Program. It should identify the courses to be transferred, including detailed course descriptions and the courses in the MSAS program to which they correspond. A minimum grade of B in each course is required for such a transfer. To transfer courses equivalent to MAT 8400 and MAT 8401, the student must also pass an examination in each course. A student with non-matriculated status may not transfer credits at the time of admission.
