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 complete Statistical Methods, Regression Methods, and Statistical Theory I within their first 15 credits. They must also complete Statistical Theory II within their first 21 credits.

*These courses, along with a few others not listed here, are offered via the MA in Mathematics program, but can be counted toward the MS in Applied Statistics Degree. Applied Statistics students should take no more than two of these "crossover" courses and should check with the Director of Applied Statistics when interested in taking more than one.

Note: Certain courses listed under other graduate programs may serve as electives with prior approval from the Director of the Applied Statistics Graduate Program.
