During the academic year, classes are typically held one night a week, Monday through Thursday, from 6:15 pm to 8:45 pm. Times may vary during the summer. Students must complete 6 required and 4 elective courses. Currently, there are no online courses available.

Students in the Master of Science in Applied Statistics (MSAS) program must have completed Statistical Methods I and II and Statistical Theory I within their first 15 credits and Statistical Theory II within their first 21 credits. Typically the first 4 courses are Statistical Methods I and II, and Statistical Theory I and II. These courses must be taken as early as possible. They are generally followed by Regression Methods and Linear Statistical Models in the next academic year. Modifications to this schedule may be made by the Director of the Applied Statistics Graduate Program.

See the Typical Schedule for Full-Time MSAS Graduate Students and registering for classes.

Did You Know

The applied statistics program offers a course of study which focuses on the training of statisticians for industry, government and academia. For many students, this will represent a final graduate statistics degree, offering them greater potential for professional advancement. For some students, this degree will be a stepping-stone toward a doctorate in statistics or in a related field. The program's flexibility permits students to take courses in areas related to applied statistics such as applied mathematics, pure mathematics and computer science.
